I need to know: I set up several email accounts here, and gave them unlimited space. How long before they fill up? Will I receive a notice if they are overfull, and that I need to delete some of my email to get more space?

Hi karencole37,

If you <a href='/support/edu/everything-email/introduction-email/creating-email-account' target='_blank'>created an email account</a> and gave it unlimited space, then generally it should not fill up / become full. Regarding email and disk space, usually the only times you will have a problem is if you're using IMAP and have a very large number of emails in the account. You can read more about that here:

<a href='/support/email/email-troubleshooting/imap-resource-usage' target='_blank'>Possible server resource usage problems when using IMAP</a>

If there ever is an issue that we need to contact you about, our System Administration team will either call or email you.

I hope this helps! Thanks,
- Brad
