I have been having some problems openning some of my e-mails recently and out of the blue, I received this e-mail. Does anybody know if it is genuine ?

'Dear Webmail User,
This message was sent automatically by a program on our webmail which
periodically checks the size of your webmail folders, where new messages
are received. The program is run often to ensure no one's inbox grows too
large. If your inbox becomes too large, you will be unable to receive new
emails. Just before this message was sent, your e-mail box has exceeded mail
quota size you had 18 Megabytes (MB) or more of messages stored in your inbox
on your Webmail. Deleting these messages from your Inbox do not specifically
space from our data base. To help us re-set your SPACE on our Data
Base prior to maintain your mail account, you must reply to this
e-mail and enter your:

First Name:
Username/ ID:

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 the 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 and SAVE a copy.
Thank you for your cooperation.
