Delivery Failure in Outlook Express

I am having some difficulty with an office email account. I have an account setup so all emails on one address go to two different computers.

Recently I am getting a Delivery Failure whenever an email is sent to the account. This is the error returned:

The error that the other server returned was: 552 552 5.2.2 User's mailbox is full (state 14).

I have cleaned up and compacted all folders and messages on each computer and switched the Store folders to drives with plenty of free space so I'm not sure what's going on.

Any advice would be appreciated.

Is your email through microsoft?

It sounds like the size of your mailbox (on microsoft's side) is limited.  If this is a free email account, this very well may be the case...

If this is the problem, you will probably have to upgrade your account for a larger mailbox size or try deleting old unused emails on the actual mail server.

The address is through Centurytel.


So, if I were to log onto the email account through the Centurytel.com site and delete emails off of their it would solve the problem theoretically?
