    How can I get more mail without getting a notification that I'm over quota when I only have maybe 5 e-mails? Could you please be explicit on your instruction also, it would be so appreciated.:confused:

    You could try talking to your provider. As your mail goes through them first, they would be the ones sending the message that you're over your quota (if in fact you really over your quota). Or it could just be a bad email.

    I tried my provider and they said that I would have to go to whoever controled Outlook Express (but in those exact words) Outlook Express was not their system. Thanks for the help

    What is the exact message when you 'reach your quota'?

    In Outlook Express,
    Tools > Accounts > (Account Name) > Properties > Advanced tab
    If checked, uncheck: Leave a copy of messages on server
    Apply, OK to save and close.


    That would be Road Runner?

    You can also login to your ISP's mail server and delete messages from there.
    They should have a progress meter that shows you what percentage of space you have used for your mailbox.
