Just received email from optus saying : "Your mailbox has exceeded 90% of its quota. When it reaches 100%, new messages will be rejected and bounce back to the sender. To avoid missing mail, please keep your mailbox at a reasonable size."
This really annoys me because they offer no guidance for deleting of bulk old emails from my mailbox. This has always been unclear and difficult - as the mailbox offer no such option?.
What is the simplest way to delete large numbers of 'obsolete" emails quickly?
Login to webmail and delete as many messages as you wish. Make sure you delete them from the recycle bin or trash as well. Keep in mind if you are running IMAP it may delete these emails from your computer as well. Best to backup your mail on your PC before you start if they are important.
