ImportantMTNL provides a limited free space to each user for storing mails. It is important that these mails are downloaded frequently to keep the server space free for new incoming mails. If you expect a large number of mails kindly downloaded them frequently. Please also make sure that the option for deleting mail messages on the server is selected . In Internet mail this can be checked by selecting "Mail" "Options" checking the "Advanced settings". In outlook express this can be verified by checking the advanced properties of the mail account. (Select "Tools" "Accounts" "properties of the account" "advanced settings"). The option "Leave messages on the server" should not be selected . If you are having more than one mail accounts configured set the latest one as default.
