Checkout bbstoreaccounts 

Eg. usr/local/bin/bbstoreaccounts setlimit userno new-soft-limit

The documentation on www.fluffy.co.uk/boxbackup
Is excellent. Check that out.

i'm glad to hear that.

also, is there an easy way (perhaps a command line tool i've overlooked) 
to increase the size of an account? and if not, would it be okay to edit 
the info.rf files by hand while all daemons are stopped? it looks easy 
enough... :)
