Space of an email box.

Can the free space of an email box be increased? What will happen when space will be completely filled up that is there will be no space left or available to receive any further mail? Will the email box not be able to receive any new mails or the earliest mails will be automatically deleted one by one to afford space for newer ones?

If the email provider is providing a 'free' service, you can usually increase the size of the email space by 'upgrading'. If it is a company email facility, the Email Systems Manager generally has control over the size allocated to each person in the company. When the email space is full, emails sent to that address will "bounce" - they will be returned to the sender as undeliverable. It is up to the individual user to delete emails that they no longer need and to keep their email space free to receive new messages.

if you fill up all your space in your e-mail inbox, your senders will get a undeiverable response in there email inbox and you would not be able to recieve anything in your inbox. I had this happen before when my inbox had limited space.

I do not think so because at the moment the space I have with yahoo mail is very sufficent even if I have thousand of junk mails.

Ever heard of Yahoo email? This has unlimited space.

Most free email will put a limit. Gmail and Hofmann have a lot of space, so you hardly run out. If you run out then any email that is sent will bounce back to the sender and you won't receive it. The nest option is to delete aol you don't need, clear your sent mail folder. Upgrading is not free and could cost you a bit of money.

As owlwings explained in box one, yes it can be increased but only if you pay for it. If you already pay for the service you can certainly increase the size capacity but it will cost more. Good luck.
