I am not sure how much work it would involve but I would prefer to
have a config option to either disable or enable the behaviour.
Much like Exim's 'quota_is_inclusive' transport setting. With this
setting set to false, Exim accepts all messages until the quota has
been exceeded.
When set to true (default setting) it calculates the current message
size and rejects it if it pushes the user over quota.
