Change quota

Running 3 Cyrus-IMAPd servers: 2.2.3; 2.1.15; 2.1.13.  We are currently
replacing the 2.1.13 and 2.1.15 servers with 2.2.5 servers and
implementing quotas.

Was wondering a couple of things and ramifications about Cyrus-IMAPd

  1. Can I change a quota after it has been in place?

     I couldn't find much talking about it.  

  2. Can I remove a quota after it has been in place?

     It appears that all I have to do the is following:
       1. rm /var/lib/imap/qota/<user initial>/<user mailbox>
       2. su cyrus -c '/usr/lib/cyrus-imapd/quota -f'
     Any issues or anecdotes?

I'm doing an administration doc and need to have these areas defined. 
Any help would be appreciated.
