    I have 900MB of storage. I am clearly not using even 150MB but it wont allow me to upload because it says quota reached. I own the servers, and I just two weeks ago deleted about 75MB of unneeded files.

    This is definitely a bug! Because its not natural. Is there a fix to this?

    Thanks.

    Go on, have a guess
    This commonly happens if you create a Forwarder and a Mail account with the same name. If you do create a Forwrader you should delete the Mail account otherwise email is delivered to both.

    Ok thanks. I created a new inbox url and uploaded it, and my space dropped to the normal amount. That was a relief.

    Thanks chirpy
