Where is all my email space going?
It has been a long while since I have had to worry about how much space I have for emails thanks to Gmail giving me a lot of free space. However that isn’t the same for everyone; many people will still have restrictions on how much space on the email server they can take up. When setting up email accounts for clients using my web server I normally set the cap at about 1Gb.
I’ve had a couple of emails recently telling me that a few of these people are rapidly approaching their limit, which was then followed up by a couple of emails from the client saying “help, I don’t know where all these emails are”.
A little bit of research told me that Apple Mail could quite easily solve this quandary for me:
- Set up the email account in Apple Mail
- Right click ‘Inbox’ and select ‘Account Info’
- Read the graph!
In my case all the space is been eaten by sent emails. Useful to know!
