you should not reject the mail immediately, it makes sense to retry the
delivery when a user is over quota. On a postfix system you can use the
following parameter to limit the queue lifetime of a message:
maximal_queue_lifetime (default: 5d)
The maximal time a message is queued before it is sent back as
Time units: s (seconds), m (minutes), h (hours), d (days), w (weeks).
The default time unit is d (days).
Specify 0 when mail delivery should be tried only once.
