Whenever anybody in our company reaches their quota the Kerio Mail Server will no longer allow any mail to be recieved for that user.

Although I understand why this happens I would much prefer it if the effect would be to stop the user from sending any mail (as it does in Exchange).

The problem with the current method is that if somebody sends a user a large file (common in our industry) that pushes them to their limit then any other mail from potentially important clients gets rejected.

I think limiting them sending email works better as it makes users tidy up their inbox etc without blocking very important email.

Any way to do this?

Very good suggestion! I want to support this feature request :)

If a user can't send mail (but still receive), it's motivation enough for him/her to start cleaning up.

Better yet: make it configurable (maybe even per user?). Because there are situations thinkable where reaching a quota should really mean that you do not allow any more space to be taken up.

Some systems have two trigger points - at the first sending is stopped, and at the second everything.
