Regular Email Account Maintenance Can Save You
It is critical that you regularly maintain your email account. This is especially important if you have the email account set up as an IMAP.
When you set up a new email account in most email programs, it will probably automatically select IMAP rather than POP. IMAP is the default so emails can be viewed, deleted etc from multiple devices.
Having emails set up as IMAP requires more maintenance to your email account than previously (before mobile devices) when POP accounts were the norm.
IMAP emails sit on the server, which takes up valuable space. POP emails are downloaded to your hard drive. As server (hosting & cloud storage) space is much dearer than the hard drive storage (memory) on your computer.
Here are a few tips to save you from increased costs in hosting fees;
- delete emails that are no required, do this as you go and once a week go through old emails and delete them.
- save and organise images and documents to another cloud server like Dropbox or an icloud account
