Setting the mail.quota.mainwindow_threshold.critical and mail.quota.mainwindow_threshold.warning preferences has no affect in my testing on either my WinXPsp2/Thunderbird 2.0.5 or Apple OS 10.4.10/Thunderbird 2.0.5 computer. I am using an IMAP server and have the following:

mail.quota.mainwindow_threshold.critical | user set | integer | 98 | user set | integer | 0
mail.quota.mainwindow_threshold.warning | user set | integer | 94

My mail server will not allow me to increase my mail quota until I reach 94% capacity so I don't need Thunderbird to warn me until I hit this target. However, I am warned starting @ 90%, and I cannot seem to change this in Thunderbird. What makes this particularly frustrating is that a recursive search for a message through my numerous IMAP folders causes Thunderbird to display this quota warning several times (maybe it is displayed for each folder it searches?).

I upgraded to 2.0.6 this morning on both computers and still have the same issue.

Any ideas?

I suggest you file a bug report at . The developers normally don't read this forum.
