Sure. It's not exactly simple:

printf "1 AUTHENTICATE PLAIN $(printf '\0[username]\0[password]' | 
base64 )\n2 GETQUOTAROOT . \n3 logout\n"  | openssl s_client -quiet  
-connect [imapservername]:993  2>&1 |grep '^\* QUOTA '

(replace the [] placeholders with your details)

That will spit out something like :

* QUOTA "User quota" (STORAGE 1616791 10485760)

Indicating that in this case I am using ~1.6GB of my 10GB quota.
