Dear Webmail User,

        This message was sent automatically by a program on Webmail which periodicallychecks the 
size of inboxes, where new messages are
received. The program is runweekly 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 wassent, 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 receiveincomingemail. You will be notified by email 
that this has takenplace.

  If yourinbox 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.
