Managing your IMAP Email Quota


Your server mailbox has a default storage space of 2 Gigabytes. When you are close to your storage limit you will receive email notification that your mailbox is over quota.

We recommend moving older email off the IMAP server and into mail folders on your own hard disk (often called “local folders”). Here’s to create a local mail folder using different email clients. Once you have created these storage folders you can drag messages from your Server Folders to your Local Folders.

With IMAP mail accounts, all your email is stored on the server, so running into your quota is more common. Most IMAP email client software have a way to check your disk usage directly in the program. (for example, in Thunderbird, right click in the Inbox, select Properties, and then the Quota tab). You can also simply login to our webmail interface- you’ll see a “Quota Usage” status bar in the upper left of the screen.

 

How to create Storage folders on your computer if you use Thunderbird, Outlook Express, or Windows Mail (Vista)

Mozilla Thunderbird Outlook Express Windows Mail

From the File Menu click on New and then Folder..
Give the Folder a name (i.e “archived mail”) and Create it as a subfolder of “Local Folders”

How to create Storage folders on your computer if you use Microsoft Outlook or Apple Mail

Microsoft Outlook Apple Mail
From the File Menu click on New and then Folder..
Give the Folder mailbox a name (i.e “archived mail”) and place the folder inside “Personal Folders”
From the Mailbox Menu  Click on New Mailbox..
Give the mailbox a name (i.e “archived mail”) and set the location to “On My Mac”




Remember that the Trash is just another IMAP mail folder. When you delete a message, the message is just moved into the Trash folder. We recommend setting your email software to empty the trash when you exit the email application.
