Mailbox Size Limit

Mailbox quota for standard iiNet Group email addresses is 1GB. If you are over this quota, you will be notified that you need to reduce the size of your mailbox, otherwise you may have difficulty sending and receiving emails.

In order to avoid the accumulation of wasted files on the iiNet mail server, we have implemented a policy of deleting messages that have not been accessed by customers for an extended period of time. 

The following table lists the current message deletion policy that is applied on the mail server: 
 

Email location Time the email is kept
Inbox Unread email is deleted after 12 months. Read email is never purged.
Trash, Junk, Spam, Unwanted All email in folders named TrashJunkSpam or Unwanted is deleted after 1 month.
Held Messages (Spam System) All emails are deleted after 2 weeks.
Other Folders Email is never deleted from any other folders.
