Location of mail storage once the quota has reached the limit
I implemented user quotas for the directory /var. The server is acting as a mail server (IMAP+ webmail)and my intention was to limit the storage of mails in the server.Once a user reaches his limit, mails are not stored in the file /var/spool/mail/user1, but somewhere else. Once I make room for more mails ,the mails for the user automatically comes to his mail box. where are these mails stored initially(before I make room for these mails). I use fetchmail to fetch the mails and the mails are fetched even if the quota for the user has reached the limit.Please tell me the location where the mails fetched after reaching the quota limit are stored.
Thanks in advance
