1) maildir++ quota works only with maildir storages. This error message
is pretty bad though, I fixed it to now log:
Warning: quota maildir: No maildir storages, ignoring quota.
2) The quota rules are different from per-mailbox quotas. The quota
rules only apply when saving messages to the mailbox.
You could use dirsize backend with mbox, but if you wanted it to display
only INBOX's quota you'd need to modify the sources.
