Finding out how much email storage has been used

Referring to the topic 'Email storage limit in the new mail system', I ascertained that the email storage limit is 20GB. I wanted to know whether there had been any development in providing a way of finding out how much storage of the 20GB limit has been used?

Can anyone advise?

Michael

It's more about 26GB if I am converting the KB value right:

It currently isn't possible to see that info through the webmail. In the image above that was the storage space max value my email client (Outlook 2007) reported to me about each of my VM emails. 

If use an email client: ask Google something like "MyEmailClientName+version check email storage space" (for example: "Outlook 2007 check email storage space") you should find a guide telling you how to do see that info.

Re: Finding out how much email storage has been used

Hi Shelke,

  • 1024 bytes = 1 KB
  • 1024 KB = 1 MB
  • 1024 MB = 1 KB

Usually....

Sadly the impression now is that

  • 1000 bytes = 1 KB
  • 1000 KB = 1 MB
  • 1000 MB = 1 KB

Do you know how VM do their calculations on storage, the first table (correct) or the second (incorrect)?

It makes a difference.

Yes, the loveliness of  the case sensitivity in tech calculation Cat LOL

I don't know @Sololobo, 26.2GB does work out right though. When I tried asking Google to see how it converted the value, I got values of like 0.3MB etc which are clearly wrong.

Re: Finding out how much email storage has been used

I don't know if this is helpful to you or anyone else, but MacOS Mail displays the quota limits and amount left -

Right-click on the mailbox and choose 'Get Account Info'. Note it says that the capacity is a little over 26GB.
