For us (whith FreeBSD 6.x and 7.0), this (quota over NFS) only works
since 1.1. I had the same error with dovecot-1.0x.

With 1.1, we still need:
 - rquotad in /etc/inetd.conf in both server and client (and of cource
inetd_enable="YES" in /etc/rc.conf ;)
  to check this, "# rpcinfo -p server | grep rquota"
 - quota enable on this filesystem...

I think there was a patch somewhere to enable this on 1.0x too... check
the archives.
