Hello List.
Currently I have configured the share of users through the LDAP query as


protocol imap {
  mail_plugins = quota imap_quota

plugin {
  quota = dirsize

userdb ldap {
    args = /etc/dovecot/dovecot-ldap.conf

auth_bind = yes

ldap_version = 3
base = dc=XXX,dc=YY,dc=ZZ
deref = never
scope = subtree

user_attrs =
user_filter = (&(objectClass=posixAccount)(uid=%u))

pass_attrs =
pass_filter = (&(objectClass=posixAccount)(uid=%u))

Additionally in thunderbird customers have the plug so they can see the
share. This works perfect!

However, when the mailbox exceeds 100% users continue to receive mail which
makes the risk set allocated disk space, the idea is that when full the mail
with a message "mailbox XXX full" .

As always appreciate the ideas.
