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

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
