From http://wiki.dovecot.org/Quota: "The above example shows how to set
the same quota globally for everyone. You can override this for one or
all users by returning a quota field from the user database."

http://wiki.dovecot.org/DovecotLDAPostfixAdminMySQL has the following
config sample:
plugin {
  quota = maildir:storage=10240:messages=1000
  acl = vfile:/etc/dovecot/acls
  trash = /etc/dovecot/trash.conf

I doubt "quota = maildir" will work, since it doesn't define any
defaults.  You also said that your quotas are defined in the database,
so I'm assuming that it's part of your user query.

The query result you have above indicates that the quota is about 50MB,
and that it should ignore the Trash folder.  What is the current disk
usage of everything except the Trash folder?
