(1) Why does the documentation for the quota command say
Running quota with both the -f option and mailbox-prefix arguments
is not recommended.
I would like to be able to run "quota -f user/abc" and have the quota for
user "abc" quickly fixed which I infer from
If any optional mailbox-prefix arguments are given, the quota
listing (and inconsis- tency fixing) is limited to quota roots with
names that start with one of the given prefixes.
is what will happen, but this documentation conflicts with the recomendation.
(2) How much impact is it to run "quota -f" just any time. The code in
quota.c has a comment
* Lock mailbox list to prevent mailbox creation/deletion
* during the fix
which suggests that users may have problems creating new folders while
quotas are being fixed. I'm guesing the answer is an "it depends" one, in
which case I'm looking for experience answers.
