I know this has been asked before (heck, I think maybe I've even asked 
so I apologize right away for being redundant.

But, is there anyway to have sendmail check quota and reject during the 
stage if the user is over quota as well? The amount of bounceback emails that
gets generated from over quota accounts is horrible for us :)
