When mailbox storage is used up to 90% or 98%, the system notifies you via email (unless you set it otherwise according to Emails – Customer Admin Panel Settings).

A completely full mailbox blocks both receiving and sending mail. You can solve this issue by:

Check in Customer Administration Panel

  1. Log into the customer administration panel.
  2. In the navigation bar, select Web & Email Hosting Webhosting, Mailhosting, WebSite, or WMS.

Common Issues

Common issues with checking mailbox capacity include:

Inaccurate Mailbox Size

Issue: After deleting emails from boxes, the system still displays the old value.

Cause: The system does not continuously update the displayed values. The time of the last update is usually displayed next to the data.

Solution: If you need to update your mailbox size as soon as possible, ask support to update your email quota manually. Include the name of the service.


Question: How do I find out which data fills the mailbox the most?
Answer: The easiest way to find out if individual mailboxes are full is in the administration. You can find out how the sub-folders of the mailbox are filled in WebMail in Settings >> Folders >> (Selected folder) >> Size. The size of individual e-mails is shown in the overview.
