User Quotas: procmail exited with EX_TEMPFAIL

Description of problem:
With say for example a 10MB soft disk quotas enabled, and a 15MB hard disk
quota, when attempting to email a user who has exceeded this quota, sendmail
cannot deliver the message, providing the following error:
stat=Deferred: local mailer (/usr/bin/procmail) exited with EX_TEMPFAIL
The email remains in the local queue, re-attempted every queue time until I
assume it eventually gets rejected.
Ultimately, couldn't procmail instead mention that the user quotas have been
exceeded, and email the sender accordingly notifying that the message will
be "delivered when there is enough disk quota?"
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. As above.
Actual Results: As above.
There was some discussion of this on the procmail list a while back:
Does this still happen with more recent releases of RHL or Fedora Core?
