This happens when the allocated space for your email account reaches its capacity. In this article, we'll guide you through steps to resolve this issue and suggest best practices for email management.

Step 1: Email Cleanup

  • Action Required: Review your current emails and delete any that are no longer necessary, with a focus on large attachments.
  • Benefit: Frees up space in your account, allowing new emails to come through.

Step 2: Regular Backups

  • Action Required: Regularly back up important emails and attachments to your local hard drive or a cloud storage service.
  • Benefit: Secures your important data and prevents your email from being used as the primary storage space.

Step 3: Use Alternative Email Storage Solutions

  • Suggestion: For long-term storage, consider using external email services like Yahoo or Gmail, or other cloud storage options.
  • Benefit: These services often provide more substantial storage space and are ideal for backup purposes.

Step 4: Implement Email Management Practices

  • Recommendation: Adopt effective email management habits, such as regular archiving, managing subscription lists, and monitoring your email quota.
  • Benefit: Helps in maintaining an organized inbox and prevents future overflows.
