A friend of mine has been trying to send me some picture files but I am getting this message when he tries, what I think is strange is that the bounce source is not my ISP ( Adelphia ) Could it be that I have a virus ?

Return-Path: <>
From: <Bounce_Notice_From>
Subject: ATTENTION: Bounced Message Notification, total bytes stored.
Date: <Bounce_Notice_Date>

A message was sent to you that was returned to the sender(bounced)
because it would have caused your mailbox quota to be exceeded.

The following is the reason that the message was over quota:

Quota Type: total bytes stored
Quota Available: 176641
Total Quota: 5120000

The following is the information on the message that was bounced:

Sender:
Subject: 7 only one in this .. end of column
Size: 802107
Message ID: <MOEKIKLOFDHPPNLIOJPCAENBCAAA.
Date: Fri Feb 3 19:49:13 2006

Reply-To: [No Reply-To]

To fix this problem, delete some messages from your mailbox, and contact
the sender to resend the message.

If the size of the message is too big, contact the sender to reduce the
size of the message and resend the message.

Because you're expecting the email from your friend, I'd suspect that the funky address was due to another server that Adelphia uses for email. You might want to google for the bounce address to see if you can link it to Adelphia.

Also, it says that you friend was sending 802107 bytes to you - and you only have 176641 available. I'd suggest that you follow their instructions and remove some emails from your account.
My browser caused a flood of traffic, sio my IP address was banned. Hope to fix it soon. Will get back to posting as soon as Im able.

What I don't understand is that these e-mails are stored on my hard drive , right ? So why would removing e-mails from my drive free up room in my account ? Where is this account ?

Once these messages are downloaded to your computer then they are removed from the sever even if you wait a month to open them.

In some cases the server may fault and the messages do not get removed.
Log onto your ISP and enter your mail box and check to see if the messages you have downloaded are not still showing in the server inbox.

Make sure your friend isn't trying to send you bitmap pictures. Those can go several megabytes each. I had a similar problem recently.

There are settings in the various email programs that will enable you to leave email on the server while downloading it to your local system. I suspect that's what happened here.

Log into the webmail feature of your ISP. From there you'll be able to see what's stored on their servers.
