    Are they returned to senders or just discarded?

    Thanks in advance.

    It stops any e-mails being lost, however restricts the normal cause of bandwidth being exceeded which is due to website traffic. Incoming mail will normally only be a minimal amount and so as soon as their account is back in quote or upgraded, they have immediate access to their e-mails.

    What about suspended accounts?
    Are they still receiving emails?

    They shouldn't. Why not try suspending a test account of your own to find out first hand? :)

    Because I only own end-user accounts atm.
    Are those email discarded or returned to sender?

    Thank you.
