[SOLVED] Quota exceeded or Mailbox Full notice?
When somebody's mailbox is filling up (say, when it hits 90 or 95%) or when it's truly full, I know you get a nice red bar on the web client, but that doesn't help for IMAP users. Is there a way to get the system to notify either the administrator or the user or (preferably) both when a box is filling or has become full?
Even better than I expected
While I was messing with this script, I happened to notice that my over-quota account shows a warning bar in Thunderbird. Nothing like this shows in Outlook Express, but Thunderbird 188.8.131.52 used as an IMAP client looks like this with a nearing-quota mailbox. That status gauge goes away completely when you're below 75%, shows a green dashed bar at 75-80%, shows yellow (like below) from 80-95%, and turns red at 95% and over. It also updates every time you click on a different folder in that account.
I can't speak for how other clients will handle this, but in Tbird it works great! I'm still going to use the notification script for a second reminder, but this is very helpful.
