Quotas provide the convenient way of determining the maximum and used size of account/folder storage. To obtain quotas, the developer can use GetAccountQuota or GetFolderQuota(String) methods.

However, the IMAP4 server must support QUOTA capability in order to take advantage of quotas. The developer may check if the server supports QUOTA using GetExtension(String) method passing "QUOTA" as name parameter value. See GetAccountQuota topic for the sample code.

Note Note
Even if the servers supports QUOTA capability, there is no guarantee all the properties of FolderQuota object will be set. This is not error, it just means the account or folder has no restrictions on the particular resource usage. For instance, MaxMessageCount and CurrentMessageCount may return -1 which means the mail server does not care about number of messages in the account. Also, QuotaName can return a null reference (Nothing in Visual Basic) if there is no quota set for this particular account or folder.
