Force immediate bounce of email if account is over quotaLast Modified: Oct 6, 2012, 12:50 am
If you wish to immediately bounce emails that are sent to client who are over quota, you can edit your /etc/exim.conf file, and find this code at the bottom of the file:

begin retry
*                      *           F,2h,15m; G,16h,1h,1.5; F,4d,8h

and insert a new line, to make it look like:

begin retry
*                      quota
*                      *           F,2h,15m; G,16h,1h,1.5; F,4d,8h

This will force all emails to an over-quota account to be immediately bounced.
Note that the message is already accepted, as exim does not have a good smtp-time method of checking quotas.
