['STORAGE']['usage'] and ['STORAGE']['limit'] are values in KB (1024 Bytes)

just to make a note for all the people that are wondering the differences between $quota['STORAGE'] and $quot['MESSAGE']
the $quot['STORAGE'] is the size of the mailbox in KB
but $quota['MESSAGE'] is actually the number of messages stored in the mailbox and the up limit of the total messages allowed

The example above isn't right. Replace with this:

<?php
$mbox
= imap_open("{your.imap.host}", "kalowsky", "password", OP_HALFOPEN)
     or die(
"can't connect: " . imap_last_error());

$quota = imap_get_quotaroot($mbox, "INBOX");
if (
is_array($quota)) {
  
$storage = $quota['STORAGE'];
   echo
"STORAGE usage level is: " $storage['usage'];
   echo
"STORAGE limit level is: " $storage['limit'];

  
$message = $quota['MESSAGE'];
   echo
"MESSAGE usage level is: " $message['usage'];
   echo
"MESSAGE usage level is: " $message['limit'];

  
/* ...  */

}

imap_close($mbox);
?>
