You mean you only want quota limits to be listed in SQL, right? Then you
don't need to use dict quota at all (or especially not sql dict).

So what you need to use is passdb pam and userdb sql. In userdb sql you
need to specify the user_query. You didn't give much information about
your current setup that I'd assume is already working without working
quota. http://wiki2.dovecot.org/AuthDatabase/SQL anyway has information
about user_query (you can ignore the password_query).
