1. Check for unwanted emails
Before you consider asking for a larger quota, please check that you do not have
any unwanted email. Please check your
Deleted Items and
Junk E-Mail folders
(both of which count towards your overall mailbox size) and consider, for
example, removing items from your
Sent Items folder. Some of those emails may

Sent Items is a two stage process;
Sent Items are automatically placed into your
Deleted Items folder from where
you should delete them again in order to reduce your mailbox size.
You can check for more information about your mailbox via the OUCS Self-Registration Pages (log in required).
