91% of your mailbox space is used. If your mailbox gets out of space, you will not be able to receive and send email.

Please delete some messages to get more free space.

You can then check quota usage upon logging in WebMail at the top right corner.

Current values:
Disk space usage is 227.80 MB of the 250.00 MB limit.


How can I find and delete the offending files?

I've deleted everything out of my Sent box, my Inbox, Large Mail and anywhere else I can think of.

I have also Emptied my Deleted Items folder after doing the above.

I need some tips, tricks, advice to resolve this.

Please your quick help is most appreciated.

You need to log into your Webmail (whoever you might use).   Outlook can handle lots of mail (Gigabytes+)    It's your allotted space in your webmail (where Outlook connects to retrieve it) that's the problem and where things are full.

Would my Outlook windows mail client know how to get to the webmail?

No, but if you look at the account settings it will show you your incoming mail server.  That's where it comes from.    Who set this mail up?    

I use gmail for my mail.   I have my mail being pulled from the gmail servers by Outlook, but if i want to access my account via webmail, i simply go to email.myserver.com,  this takes me to my gmail webmail account.  When logged into that webmail, gmail shows me how full my account is.    My Outlook is limited to the size of my hard drive or the limits of my system memory.  My webmail is limited to whatever Google alots for me.

Thanks...this gave me the info I needed.

It's a company e-mail.  I do not administer it, nor do I know who set it up, years ago.  : /
