The man page for quota says "Running quota with both the -f option and 
mailbox-prefix arguments is not recommended".

It is out of the question for me to run it without a mailbox-prefix because I have 
over 20,000 users and it would put a massive load on the system and take hours.

Why is that combination not recommended?
