 Hello distinguished colleagues. I have watched my mailbox fill up, despite my efforts to clean out Inbox, and all of my other folders..I am now full and not able to send or receive messages.This is on my work computer, so I am losing money and clients as I type.I became so frustrated I cleaned out every folder, (probably a big mistake), but it had no effect on volume of mailbox. We have an IT guy who naturally is unavailable, and I am out of ideas. I am on a network and no one else is experiencing this problem. I am running Windows 7 professional, in conjunction with Outlook 2010.

 Any help or thoughts would be greatly appreciated. I am not sure I can send this e-mail, so I may be copying this and commandeering a fellow workers computer, to get this to BC.

                                                                               Thanking all in advance,

                                                                                Newagedavey11

Have you tried setting up rules so offending emails can be deleted ?

In worst case, you could set up a negative filter...one which deletes everything you haven't specifically said you want...

 

Another alternative would be to switch over to gmail (you can set up domain email to forward to gmail and subsequently set up gmail so that the email looks like it's coming from your domain) ... there are a variety of ways of blocking emails...you will probably want to look at the routing information of the problematic emails ...

 

Here's a couple of articles which may help...
