The mailboxes table

The mailbox table contains a list of mailboxes. You can sort this information by the name, number of messages, or disk usage.

  • Mailbox Name — The name of the mailbox.
  • # of Messages — The number of messages for the address or in the mailbox folder.
  • Disk Usage — The disk usage for each address or mailbox, in bytes, kilobytes (KB), megabytes (MB), or gigabytes (GB).

    Due to system caching, these values may not reflect recent changes in your account’s disk space.

  • Actions — The actions available for the mailbox.
