That depends on the attachments that the emails can have. If it where only text emails, with no attachments, you're talking about thousands of emails on 500MB space.

If you receive lots of emails with videos (fun) attached, and each email has a 2MB video, you can only handle less that 250 of these emails. If you're receive only text emails and each emails has only say 500 bytes, you can handle 1000 emails. If they have only 2 lines of text (200 bytes) you can handle 2500 emails, and so on.

You could have 1000 half mb emails, it kind of depends on the size if the messages.
