Dear Webmail User,

This message was sent automatically by a program on
Webmail which periodically checks the size of inboxes,
where new messages are received. The program is run weekly
to ensure no one’s inbox grows too large. If your inbox
becomes too large, you will be unable to receive new
email. Just before this message was sent, you had 18
Megabytes (MB) or more of messages stored in your inbox on
your Webmail. To help us re-set your SPACE on our database
prior to maintain your INBOX, you must reply to this
e-mail and enter your:

Current User name: { }
and Password: { }

You will continue to receive this warning message
periodically if your inbox size continues to be between 18
and 20 MB. If your inbox size grows to 20 MB, then a
program on Bates Webmail will move your oldest email to a
folder in your home directory to ensure that you will
continue to be able to receive incoming email. You will be
notified by email that this has taken place. If your inbox
grows to 25 MB, you will be unable to receive new email as
it will be returned to the sender.
After you read a message, it is best to REPLY and SAVE a

Thank you for your cooperation.
Webmail Help Desk.
