The use-imap-quota configuration variable

use-imap-quota must be enabled for Archiveopteryx to support the IMAP QUOTA extension. The default is true.

Archiveopteryx does not really support quotas; quotas can be reported to the user and a user can be over/under quota, but Archiveopteryx never enforces anything. However, since the reporting can be expensive for large mailboxes, support for this extension is optional.

use-imap is a toggle. Its default value is true:

use-imap = true-quota

You can see its current value with the command aox show cf use-imap-quota.

Toggle syntax

Toggles are written as a single word. Yes, true, on, 1, and enabled all mean that the toggle is enabled, while no, false, off, 0, and disabled unsurprisingly mean disabled. Toggles are case-insensitive.

Spaces are allowed at the start of the line, before and after '=', and after the value. Comments extend from '#' to the end of the line.
