NAME

       deliverquota - deliver to a maildir with a quota

SYNOPSIS

       deliverquota [ -c ] [ -w percent ] maildir quota

DESCRIPTION

       deliverquota  delivers  mail  to  a  maildir  taking  into  account any
       software-imposed quota on the maildir.   This  manually-enforced  quota
       mechanism is described in the maildirquota(7) and maildirmake(1) manual
       pages.  Instead of setting up your mail server to deliver  the  message
       directly   to   a  maildir,  configure  the  mail  server  to  run  the
       deliverquota program in order to deliver the message, and  specify  the
       location of the maildir as the argument to deliverquota.

       The  second  argument  to  deliverquota is optional.  If present, quota
       specifies a new quota setting for this maildir.   Specifying  quota  is
       equivalent  to  running  maildirmake(1) with the -q option.  The second
       argument to deliverquota is considered obsolete, and may be removed  in
       the future.

       deliverquota  reads  the message from standard input and delivers it to
       maildir.  maildir may specify a path directly to a maildir folder,  not
       the   main   maildir  (as  long  as  the  folder  was  created  by  the
       maildirmake(1) command.

       The -c option automatically creates the maildir, and all missing parent
       subdirectories  (as  ’mkdir  -p’).   This  option  should  be used with
       caution.

       The -w N option places a  warning  message  into  the  maildir  if  the
       maildir  has  a  quota  setting, and after the message was successfully
       delivered the maildir was at least N percent full.  The warning message
       is  copied  verbatim  from  /etc/quotawarnmsg  with the addition of the
       "Date:" and "Message-Id:" headers.  The warning is  repeated  every  24
       hours (at least), until the maildir drops below N percent full.

RETURN CODE

       deliverquota  delivers  the  message to the maildir and terminates with
       exit code 0 if the message can be delivered without going over quota.

       If the maildir is over its  specified  quota,  deliverquota  terminates
       with exit code 77 (EX_NOPERM).
