How I can check the user quota inside a debian openvz vps ?

The user's mail quota looks wrong; I have this error:

procmail: Quota exceeded while writing "/xxxx/Maildir/tmp/"

but the user quota looks under his limit.

Check your diskspace and inodes inside the VPS:

vzctl exec ps -f # for diskspace

vzctl exec ps -i # for inode usage

In case some of them are out of boundary correct them;

vzctl set --diskinodes [minvalue]:[maxvalue] --save

vzctl set --diskspace [min]GB:[max]GB --save
