Mail alert to mail user


Hi,

I am using a postfix as MTA, Squirrel mail as a mail - client and
CyrUp for domain based, email administration.

I would like a alert message to be sent to the user who's mail quota has
reached 90%.

Is there a method to implement the same in any of the above software.

My distribution is Trustix Secure Linux release 3.0

FLOSS

Postfix is used for delivering mail between hosts, are you using procmail for local delivery? procmail obeys file-system quotas so if you set quota up on your mail spool's partition, you can achieve it that way.

Procmail is configured to deliver local mail. But i am not sure how the quota system is being used.
As all the user, i can see them in Mysql table.
