We provide pop3/IMAP emails for most of our hosting clients, and some of them prefer to use the WebMail interface we supply, Roundcube. Some of them use email clients such as Outlook, Windows Mail and Thunderbird.

However, if you have your email set up as IMAP then you may find your email storage runs out, even if you keep deleting things.

And thats it!

You now only have emails you actually want, taking up your mailbox quota 🙂
