How do I turn on or off the little bar graph in the status bar which shows the percentage of maximum storage space used on the mail server.

I have obviously found the setting in the past as most of my email accounts show this. Now I want to turn it on for another account I have added, but I can't find how.

If the server supports quotas, the bar graph can be displayed by setting mail.quota.mainwindow_threshold.show to 0 (zero) in Config. editor.
