To use DBM quota database, GNU Mailutils must
be compiled with one of the following command line options:
--with-gdbm, --with-berkeley-db, --with-ndbm,
--with-tokyocabinet, or --with-kyotocabinet.
Examine the output of
maidag --show-config-options, if not sure.
The quota database should have the following structure:
Key represents the user name. Special key ‘DEFAULT’ means default quota value, i.e. the one to be used if the user is not explicitly listed in the database.
