I belong to a computer group which maintains a bulletin board under the auspices of the FREE, Yahoo Group privilege. I just rec'd a warning from the Yahoo Group mgt. that I am being bounced because "this Account is Over Quota". Further research indicates that the problem is that I, having been out of town, have allowed my email account of both read and unread messages to reach nearly 900 in number. Since I have recently changed ISPs to one which provides me with a Pop3 account I thought the number of accumulated messages had no bearing on the server since whenever I access the server all those messages are downloaded to my hard drive. Am I wrong in this assumption? Quite frankly, this was one of the primary reasons for my change in ISPs since the former offered only a webbased email and I was constantly being reminded if and when I approached my allocated storage limit on the server. I would appreciate a clarification of the difference between POP 3 and webbased email accounts, in this respect. TIA.
