Internet Channel receives mail for you and stores it on our server. If you use a pop mail program like Netscape Messenger, Eudora, or Outlook, you may not realize that the messages remain stored on our server. This is because the mail programs typically show you only new messages.

Without the proper setting, your mail file can grow to unmanageable sizes, making your mail activities seem slow, and taking up space on the server unnecessarily.

To prevent your mail spool from getting too large, you should download mail to your computer and delete it from the server. This document shows you how to configure several of the popular mail programs to prevent your mail file from getting too large.

Note: There may be times when you want to "leave mail on server" (e.g., if you want to download the mail from 2 different computers), or if you keep a close watch on the amount of mail you have and use the "delete from server when deleted from trash" configuration.
