[CentOS] Limiting maildir sizes with Postfix?

I have a small Squirrelmail server, using Postfix & Dovecot. I am
trying to limit the amount of mail a user can get. The
"mailbox_size_limit" value does not seem to be being honored. I am
using the Maildir directory format.

>From googling, it appears that "mailbox_size_limit" applies to a
single file (mbox format?), and that it does not work with Maildirs.
Is this correct?

How should I limit the Mailbox size of the users?

I'm not very familiar with Linux "quotas", but I think that is my only
other choice.
