      Hash: SHA256

      I'm running postfix/courier. Is it better to let postfix handle quotas or let courier do it, or is it just a matter of preference?

      I'm dealing with strictly virtual users here. From the articles I've come across having postfix handle it seems pretty straightforward, although ht most of the walktheoughs i see are a bit old.

      Thanks
      Bruce

        A recent and useful article about how to reject pre-queue based on quota
        is linked below; but, it is specific to dovecot. Perhaps it will
        convince you to switch from courier -> dovecot, like I did many years
        ago. :-)

          Sahil,

          Thanks for the link. I've been thinking moving to dovecot for a few
          reasons, this just adds to that.
