Question: I keep getting Quota Warnings but my Email appears empty

Usually, this is caused by a forgotten configuration on the POP3 mail client. Check your client application to be sure that you are removing messages from the server either immediately after downloading, a specified number of days after downloading or when deleted from the local trash.

You should feel free to change the settings to best suit your needs. For example, if you receive mail on a PC and your mobile phone, you may wish to leave messages on the server for a few days to allow both devices to copy the email from the server before it is deleted. Or you may only receive email on one computer and want to have the email deleted from the server when you empty the trash on that computer.
