Better yet, only update it when you absolute need to (meaning: only when you 
are checking mail or making a change to your mailbox by deleting, moving or 
renaming). That should work - of course providing your web portal is 
functioning as a mail client (checking mail/etc) and not -only- interacting 
with imap to retrieve the quota.
