Here are several of the tools you will need to know to
keep your inbox cleaned out.
What happens when my mailbox is full?
When your mailbox becomes full, the following steps occur
Warning messages telling you that your mailbox is full
are forwarded to your inbox.
If mailbox storage continues
to grow, your mailbox will be closed until you reduce
the number of messages stored
there. In other words, you need to delete or save your
messages onto a floppy disk. Warning messages are still
sent out daily. You can still log in and read or delete
messages but you can’t do much else until you reduce
the storage below the limits.
How do I keep my inbox from exceeding the limit?
For every email message
you send, a copy of the message is stored in your ‘sent items’ folder.
Over a period of time this folder can become quite large.
folder size is included in your total storage, so be sure
to regularly check and clean out this folder.
Keep in mind that whenever
you delete messages from the ‘sent
items’ folder they will be moved to the ‘deleted
items’ folder and are still included in your total
mailbox storage. Now empty the ‘deleted items’ folder.
Do this on a regular schedule and your mail box should
not fill up. A good practice would be to empty the ‘deleted
items’ folder when you finish using your email.
What is the quickest way to clean out my inbox?
To quickly generate more space it is recommended that
you first remove emails with large attachments as soon
Can I save my emails in case I need them later?
Yes, you can save email to a disk (floppy, or CD-RW media).
Attachments have to be saved as a separate item. Saving
email to disk can allow you to keep the email indefinitely
and will prevent
your email account from being to full.
