Does anyone have any idea where this comes form? Is it from Microsoft or Virgin?


THIS IS AN AUTOMATED MESSAGE . THERE'S NO NEED TO REPLY.

Dear Customer,

This is just a note to remind you that your mailbox is nearly full.
This may be as a result of you receiving many emails or large files
that have used up a large part of your quota.

This means that if you don.t deal with it very soon your incoming mail
won't get to you, but don't worry it's easy to sort out. Simply delete
the messages you don't need from your "Inbox", "Sent", "Trash/Deleted"
and any other webmail folder, starting with the oldest ones first.

That way you'll make plenty of room for your new messages and you'll
start to receive them straight away. Please remember that we can't keep
any emails that we can't deliver to you. So it's important to make
sure you've always got space in your mailbox for incoming messages.

Quota Type: bytes in the mailbox

If you think it's genuine you can always check with your ISP/email provider(s). G

It will be from your ISP, you need to delete messages left on the server, not on your computer.

How do I opt to NOT leave messages on the server once they are downloaded? I cannot see any options. I use Virgin.

  Eric10 13:49 02 Nov 2009

The option not to leave messages on the server is set in your email client. To give specific help we need to know which email program you are using. e.g. Outlook, Outlook Express, Windows Live Mail, etc.

Windows Live Mail on Windows 7.

It could be your spam folder is full.

Log onto your Virgin Media account via the Virgin home page and check your spam folder. Unless you have selected from the settings spam to be deleted you will have to log on and manually delete these files from the spam folder.

No problems with the on line spam folder. I just need to stop leaving copies of downloaded messages on the server, and cannot see any options to do so, either on line or in Windows live mail.
