That's a bit tricky problem. Even if LDA used LMTP, it couldn't ignore quota since LMTP server is the one enforcing it. Perhaps you need to create two LMTP ports, one with a "quota ignored" configuration. Then you need to somehow get the mail delivered there (maybe send it to your MTA and route it from there). Or write a script that sends the mail directly to the LMTP port on director.
