NAME

       deliverquota - deliver to a maildir with a quota

SYNOPSIS

       deliverquota [-c] [-w percent] [-W filename] {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)[1]
       and maildirmake(1)[2] 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)[2] 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)[2] 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 from the file specified by the -W option, or
       from /etc/courier/quotawarnmsg if -W was not specified. The "Date:" and "Message-Id:"
       headers are added to the message. 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).
