Webmail mailbox size increase? Or how to delete emails..

My mailbox was full, Bigpond says no increase in size is available. Bigpond also says I can't export a heap so as to reduce quota. I can't delete any more than 50 emails at a time - this is ridiculous!!!

Anyone found a way around this - apart from going to another provider???

Was this helpful?

  • Yes it was, thank you
  • No, I still need help

Use an application like Outlook or Thunderbird. That way you can bulk delete, archive, group, etc

 

Webmail is very limited in its functionality no matter who your provider is.

Never be afraid to back yourself when trying new things, just always make sure you have 3 escape routes if things go wrong.

I do use a mail client, but Bigpond's webmail comes with my bigpond email account, so is a backup for me. All webmail apps aren't as restrictive in what you can do to hive off older messages as this Bigpond one.

If you are using a mail client, why are you wanting to use the webmail interface to manage your mail?

I was primarily wanting more capacity so as to retain all the current messages. I don't really want to delete any mail.
