    have any of you using .mac or .me received "over quota" messages? i tried sending an email to my wife's .mac account and it bounced back, saying her account was "over quota". she's a very light user and has already removed large messages in her inbox and sent folders, but we still get the message. any suggestions? thanks.

    go to http://www.me.com/mail/

    Go to the Account Settings tan and check on the Mail and iDisk Storage

    If it really is fully utilized, you'll need to purge some messages.

    Trash and Junk should be the folders to clean up first.

    In the account settings, click on the "settings" button for mail and iDisk storage, and choose a larger allocation for mail - from 30 mb, 1 GB, or up to 17+GB actually (yup, overkill) so no need to purge messages

    opd, yeah I forgot that we're up to 20GB of storage.

    butch, is the account an email-only account (extension) or a full-time one? My wife has the same problem sometimes, and it's an email-only account.

    EDIT: I just looked into my wife's email only account and it says that she has only 512MB of storage. Okay, that's just way too small. I guess I should upgrade to a family pack now.

    Apple no longer sells e-Mail only accounts. This is their way of easing the service out, by keeping the size to a miniscule 512mb. It's so hard to accept, especially compared to our 20GB standard accounts.
