	That's because quotas like this don't actually have anything to 
do with postfix.  Any mailbox quotas that are applied come from the 
Local Delivery Agent, or the operating system and filtered up through 
through the LDA.

	From the LDA, these errors are filtered up through to postfix, 
which then issues either a permanent or a temporary error code to the 
sending machine, depending on how you have configured it to react to 
that kind of error from the LDA.

	So, when trying to debug problems like this, start with postfix, 
and follow through from there to the LDA.
