receives email notification that the storage limit has been reached.
The user must then delete or archive old emails to allow the account to
receive new messages.
Email messages will be retained for 4 years. A utility will run that
automatically deletes any messages older than 4 years. Messages in any
folders and sub-folders are not excluded from this retention policy.
Email attachments are limited to 200 MB for internal messages, and 20 MB for external messages.

cannot be recovered. After an additional 180 days of non-use, the
account is permanently deleted. An inactivated account may be
