Speaking of POP3, there is an obscure setting that I occasionally see set when people don’t expect it: “Leave a copy of messages on the server”.The location of the setting varies depending on the email program you’re using, but the effect is the same: rather than removing the messages from your mail server when you download, it leaves them there, and they continue to count against your quota.
After I did a recovery on my computer, my email program has not worked properly as far as the inbox is concerned. I can have only 40 messages in my inbox and it will start bouncing my messages, still saying I am OVER QUOTA! That could be Hotmail, Yahoo, GMail, or the email provided by your company, your ISP [Internet Service Provider]ISP is an acronym for Internet Service Provider.
I used to be able to get 700-800 or more emails in my inbox (if I went on vacation or didn’t check for a while) and after the recovery, once I reached about 80 emails it started bouncing my messages saying I was OVER QUOTA!!! (Not to be confused with IP, which is completely unrelated.)As the name implies, an ISP is the company or service that provides the physical connection between your home or place of business and the internet.
The term refers to your original message “bouncing back” to you.
A message indicating that an email message has been delayed, but may still be delivered, is sometimes also incorrectly referred to as bounce.
In addition to reading and dealing with email on your computer, you might also be using a mobile device, such as a mobile phone.
