Once you do the update, should it show in the kolab list-quota right 
away or does something need to sync between ldap and cyrus?

list-quota is still showing the old value, even after a few hours.

I assume ldapmodify would error out if it didn't find the object/property.

On a side note is there a spot to create a global quota?   The Kolab 
Webadmin interface shows 0 on all accounts.   I tried changing that but 
it had no affect.
