1. How to set quota and mail quota

Could anyone tell me how to set quota for user and mailboxes?

For the user quota.. I tried the mini-QuotaHowto but won't work...

    well, I have this in my configuration
    /etc/fstab
    /dev/hda2    /    ext2    defaults,grpquota,usrquota    1 1
    and have quota.user and quota.group resides in / and /home
    when I type quotaon -avug
    nothing showed up
    when I type quotacheck -avug
    nothing showed up
    when I typed repquota -a
    nothing showed up
    -sigh-...
    I reboot, nothing special....
    edquota -u user1
    after I typed in everything.... :wq
    still nothing happen.. and login as user1, type quota -ug, ha...
quota
    for user1 :none

    What's wrong?? I really dunno....

I have set the kernel. But still nothing happen...
      When I edquota -u user1
      it only shows:
      Quotas for user user1:
      ~
      that's all. Then I typed in manually all the stuffs same as the
Mini-HowTo, is it just press <Esc> to the
      normal mode, type :wq to save and exit, that's all? Or I have to
save as other file like :wq!
      {quota.user} ??

      and when I check quota for other user1 by typing quota user1
      it shows quota for user1(UID xxx): 0
      why?
      nothing changed....... please help me.... how to see if the quota
is enabled in Kernel. I use the make
      menuconfig, type Y to the quota....and reboot...
      nothing happens....
      Please help me ......furthermore, how to set quota for user email
account? Like not more than 2MB
      of mail to be stored? Because I am scared of someone bom my user
email ...
      Anyway, thanks in advance !!... Help... anybody out
