The Helpdesk Program that periodically checks the size of your space email is sending you this information. The program runs weekly to ensure your inbox does not grow too large, preventing you from receiving or sending new email. As this message is being sent, you have 18 megabytes (MB) or more stored in your inbox.

To help us reset your space in our database, enter your current username (___________) Password (_________) You will receive a periodic alert if your inbox size is between 18 and 20 MB. If the mailbox size is 20 MB, a program on your Webmail will move your oldest email to a folder in your home directory to ensure that you can continue to receive incoming emails. You will be notified that happened.

If your inbox grows to 25 MB, you will not be able to receive new emails and it will be returned to sender. These are all programmed to ensure your e-mail continues to work well. Thanks for your Desk cooperation.Help.
