I believe 5.4 is no longer supported,  I would suggest investigate an
upgrade strategy to the latest release, factoring in  due diligence.

This is a quota defined by courier but your SMTP server is postfix.

What was the previous version?   Did you save it's config files esp.
main.cf file before upgrading to 2.9.3-1?

To the best of my knowledge, postfix will apply quota upon receipt of
mail as per it's own settings and not read courier settings.   I think
you will need to tinker with postfix's configuration to enforce quota.

Besides, if the Maildir in the user's home directory you also need to
factor in the file system quota.
