Topic: Dovecot: internal quota calculation error

I got the same error in /var/log/maillog.

Oct 12 00:30:08 mail postfix/qmgr[13124]: B9E5C23405C3: from=<akash.kumar@example.com>, size=1523, nrcpt=1 (queue active)

Following is /var/log/sieve.log

If i keep quota = 0 ie unlimited, i don't get any error message. The mail is sent properly and saved in Sent Items.

But If i keep quota = 512 or something, I keep on getting the same message. The Mail is sent, but is not saved in sent Item.

Please help. I need to assign users quota and don't want to give them unlimited storage.


Re: Dovecot: internal quota calculation error

You can keep mailbox.quota=512. Then set both columns mailbox.bytes and mailbox.messages to -1, it will force Dovecot to recalculate realtime mailbox usage.

Re: Dovecot: internal quota calculation error


I tried the solution given in earlier post.

But still I get the same error in mailq :

                                                           (temporary failure)

Please help. I have got nearly 300+ mails stuck in mailq.


Re: Dovecot: internal quota calculation error

This error message is helpless. Please extract related error log in Postfix log file.

You can redeliver this mail immediately and get error log in postfix log file:
