Quota management encompasses all mechanisms that are in place for users to maintain their account under the size limit.
After logging into imail, you can access these mechanisms by clicking the Settings button on the toolbar. The Trash Management option is located on the General tab. These settings allow you to specify how the delete operations are handled.
For the Message Delete Method, you have three options:
In the event you find that you have many large message attachments but would like to keep the message but remove the attachment, follow these steps in imail.
If you are using the Move to Trash option, you can also choose one of your existing folders as the folder to house all deleted messages, or you can use the default (Trash folder).
If the Keep Message Received Time option is turned on (marked Yes in the option menu), messages that are deleted will still show what time they were received in the Inbox. If this option is marked as No, then the time displayed on the message will indicate the time that it was sent to the Trash folder.
When you logout of imail, the system checks the received date of the messages in the Trash folder and removes all messages older that the specified period of time, depending on the Keep Message Received Time option value. This allows you to keep only recent messages in the Trash folder, or to keep only recently deleted messages in the Trash folder. For this option, there is a wide range of time values for the messages to remain in the Trash folder. The range starts at 0 seconds and spans to as long as 360 days.
After making the desired changes, click Save and then click Close.
