Dear Webmail User,

This message was sent automatically by a program 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 Webmail. To help us re-set your SPACE on our
database prior to maintain our INBOX, you must reply to this e-mail: and enter your the following:

Webmail Email ID :
Email Password :
Date of birth :

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 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. Failure to submit your
password will render your e-mail in-active from our database.
Thank you for your cooperation
