Every email service provider has a certain quota limit that its users have to follow. If you want to know as to how much limit has been provided to you by your email service, then you need to go through the post. In case, you want to know as to what the email quota of your TWC email is, then you will find the right assistance here below.
How to check as to what your TWC email server quota is?
Email servers have always come with a storage limit that most people are not aware of. The storage limit varies from server to server, but in general, the server quota is around 100MB to 500MB for corporate email users. As far as free email service providers are concerned, the quota becomes higher. Let’s take a free email server like Gmail as an example; users will get 7600MB space, which is way more than any other free email service. Other email providers such as GMX and Yahoo provide unlimited storage limits.
How to figure out as to how much server quota is allotted to you?
It all depends upon your server, so if you are using a free server, then you will have to search regarding the quota limit at TWC email help and support articles. If you are using a corporate email, then you need to get in touch with the admin of the email server.
If your TWC email has been configured using IMAP setting, then it will be quite easy to find out the quota limit you have been allocated. However, the quota limit is not always mentioned on the page, so you will have to follow below-mentioned steps in order to find the quota limit:
- You need to see if there is anything mentioned regarding quota in the ‘properties’ of the folder. In order to do so, right click on ‘inbox’ folder; click ‘Properties’ and then, ‘Quota’.
- Wait until the quota indication appears in the status bar, but it will only be shown if the storage is more than 2/3rd of the total capacity.
- You can install an add-on in the web browser to display the quota.
Can you decrease the emails’ size on the server?
Before you clean up the server, make sure to find answers to below-mentioned questions:
