If you are the proud owner of an @powerswitch.org.uk email account, can you please log in and check / trim / delete your received messages - we have nearly a gigabyte of email sat in mailboxes, which is almost as much as taken by the web space files.

I'll bet a lot of it is either spam or large attachments...

cheers,

238 1kb emails removed from "deleted"
289 mostly small emails deleted from "sent"

James will have a lot too - we get loads of junk. I had a clear out a few weeks ago, and there was over 1000

Thanks, Mike.

That made barely any measurable dent, of course - I'm betting most of it'll be due to a couple of accounts that just don't get read by anyone any more and have been clogging up. I'm going to send an email to all the configured accounts' alternative email addresses - they probably don't all read here regularly.

I receive mine though Outlook and the message is (should be!) deleted from the server once downloaded.

That'd depend on how Outlook is set up - if the account is configured as POP, it should (can) be retrieved and deleted from the server; IMAP accounts keep the mail on the server...

Mine's IMAP, but I seem to recall that POP didn't work right when I tried it - but that was 3 years ago...
