I discovered this site while trying to sort out Windows Live Mail capacity problem - I keep getting messages saying the storage is full and I must delete items. If I do not it then stops receiving mail.

I have followed the tutorial for moving the storage area from C disc (even though there is enormous spare space on my C disc) to a 14GB storage device - and next day the same message appears.

The maximum available storage seems to be 972Mb and I have 950MB - much less then the example shown in the tutorial (3GB +).

Surely if it's on my computer I can store as much as I like?

Suggestions welcome!

Are you sure you are moving the messages off of the Live server and onto your storage? Also, are you 'moving' or 'copying'?

Agreed, your capacity is limited only by your devices. The mail server can set its own limits.
