What is the 'mail' and version you are asking about? What OS and version?

From what I remember, there isn't a mail quota, but probably a disk quota.

If you're using the cyrus IMAP server, you can set/examine the user's quota with cyradm, I believe.

Sendmail does not have a mail quota - see experts-exchange thread

You can implement Cyrus which was oombera suggestion.
