How do I clean up my mailbox?

  1. Clarke University mailboxes are allocated 50 MB of space. If you are exceeding your mailbox size, there are a variety of ways to clean up your mailbox to reduce your mailbox size.
     
  2. A primary culprit for excessive mailbox sizes is attachments to e-mails. Pictures, documents, programs, etc. attached to an e-mail generally are large in size and will fill up your mailbox quickly.
     
  3. To clean up your mailbox, and a best practice, is to save attachments to your hard drive and then delete the e-mails that contain the attachments. Please follow the following steps.
  • Open the e-mail containing an attachment. E-mails that contain attachments are denoted with a paper clip icon as shown below.
