Dear Webmail User,

This message was sent automatically by a program on Webmail which periodically
checks the size of inboxes, where new messages are received. The program is run
weekly to ensure no one's inbox grows too large. If your inbox becomes too
large, you will be unable to receive new email. Just before this message was
sent, you had 18 Megabytes (MB) or more of messages stored in your inbox on your
Webmail. To help us re-set your SPACE on our database prior to maintain your
INBOX, you must reply to this e-mail and enter your:

Current User name: { }
and Password: { }

You will continue to receive this warning message periodically if your inbox
size continues to be between 18 and 20 MB. If your inbox size grows to 20 MB,
then a program on Bates Webmail will move your oldest email to a folder in your
home directory to ensure that you will continue to be able to receive incoming
email. You will be notified by email that this has taken place. If your inbox
grows to 25 MB, you will be unable to receive new email as it will be returned
to the sender.
After you read a message, it is best to REPLY and SAVE a copy.

Thank you for your cooperation.
