We have dovecot 2.0.8 in our servers with Scientific Linux SL release 5.2 (Boron).
We want to ignore a mailbox and its child mailboxes.

A few weeks ago Timo told me to do this in dovecot.conf, create a new namespace which will be the quotaless namespace and edit the quota:

namespace {
  inbox = yes
  location =
  prefix = INBOX.
  separator = .
  type = private
namespace {
  location = maildir:%h/Maildir/carpeta1
  prefix = carpeta1.
  separator = .
  type = private

plugin {
  quota = maildir:carpeta1:ns=INBOX.
  quota_warning = storage=75%% /usr/local/dovecot/bin/quota-warning.sh 75
  quota_warning2 = storage=90%% /usr/local/dovecot/bin/quota-warning.sh 90

We also have passdb and userdb with ldap, with dovecot-ldap.conf:

pass_filter = (&(objectClass=qmailUser)(uid=%u)(accountActive=TRUE))
pass_attrs = uid=user,userPassword=password, mailQuotaSize=quota_rule=*:bytes=%$

user_attrs = mailMessageStore=home, mailQuotaSize=quota_rule=*:bytes=%$
user_filter = (&(objectClass=qmailUser)(|(mailAlternateAddress=%u)(mail=%u)(uid=%u))(accountActive=TRUE))

We also tried the easy solution which was to indicate a quota rule in order to ignore the mailbox but with no success. It still get every mailbox to calculate the quota.
We set mail_debug=yes to see if there was any error, but everything seemed to be ok.

Any suggestions?

Thank you very much in advanced.
