    Hi guys,

    Recently I saw the my disk space usage is almost full, so when I went to Disk Space Usage I saw that /mail folder is using 650.26 MB
    Here is a screenshot of disk space usage:

    The folder named /new is using 650.26 MB, is there anyway I can free up disk space ??
    So, I tried to delete all the information contained in /new directory but they show up again !!

    Thanks in advance,
    Bes

    In cPanel click the Email Accounts icon. On this page it should show you which account is using the space. My guess, it's down at bottom, the Default Email account. You should be able to login from there (Access Webmail link) and clear it out.

    If that is the box thats using all the space, back in cPanel click the Default Address icon. On this page whats the Default addess for your domain(s) set to?

    Hi ,

    As the above , seems that you have setup the default address. Default address will save all the unrouted mails to your domain. You can change this settings to " fail: no such user here " using your cpanel and this will reject all the unrouted mails . Or you need to delete/fetch the mails from the default account.

    Sincerely,
