To ensure that your Web Mail Inbox does not get full, you can use several techniques:
- By default, each Road Runner email account, or address, is allotted 20 megabytes of storage. To find out how to increase this amount, see How do I change the storage capacity for my email accounts?
- Delete any emails that you no longer are using, especially those with large attachments. You can save any attachments you want to keep to your hard drive. Items in all of your mailbox folders, including the Deleted Items and Sent Items folders, count against your size limit.
- By default, you will receive a warning when your email account has reached 90 percent of its storage capacity. You can adjust this setting so that you are notified sooner and can begin deleting or moving items to increase your available storage. See Will I receive a warning before my mailbox is full?
- If you have maximized the storage capacity for the email addresses you are using and deleted or moved old email content and you still do not have enough storage capacity, you may want to consider changing your High Speed Internet subscription level. See How much storage is available for my Road Runner email?
Using an Email Client
If your High Speed Internet subscription is nearing its capacity and you have another email client, such as Outlook, Outlook Express, or Entourage, you can set it up so the mail from your Road Runner email is imported into your email client.
When you open the email client, such as Outlook, on your computer, the email in your Road Runner master account is imported automatically into your email client's inbox. All the imported email is removed from your Road Runner email account, and if you want to read that mail, you must use the email client.
