The short answer is:
    vsetuserquota [email address] [quota in bytes or abbreviated]
and the abbreviations are things like m for MB, eg
    vsetuserquota [email protected] 10m
this won't stop the user from sending mail, even if they happen to 
be using the same server for smtp, but it will bounce any incoming 
message that would take them over quota with a (rather 
embarrassing) announcement that they're full.
