...which can be a good thing if you want to give users a chance to
clean up or request more space.

The trouble with smmapd is that it gives only a binary yes/no response,
not distinguishing even 'user unknown' from 'user over quota'.  Reject
'user unknown' in the smtp session-- absolutely-- but temp fail situations
are handled more nicely by accepting and queueing locally.
