Sendmail mailbox Quota

This is really s tupid question from me, but I'm racking my brain trying to remember it.
I have RedHat 7.3, Sendmail 9, and EXT3 filesystem. I want to limit the size of user mailboxes, and if my memory isn't playing tricks on me, I need to make a seperate partition for the home directory, use disk quota's, and that's that. But, isn't there something in Sendmail that deals with this? Something that send's a message back to the sende stating that the user has reached the maximum size of thier mailbox?

don't think sendmail has a quota option
you will have to install quota
or it might be on redhat already
it allows you to set limits on individual files
