I just upgraded 2 emails addresses to the 10GB limit.  How do I remove the 5GB option from billing?

I just upgraded the 2GB several times and couldn't get the quota to increase. I then upgraded to 1 5GB. I think I only need the 1 5GB-can you delete all the 2GB orders for my email barbara@bjwilliamscpa.com?

It says I do not have an available upgrade and I most deff do, I see I was billed for it but states I can not apply the needed gigs to any account and sends me back to the purchasing page ? I would like to apply them to the Tara@ and The John @ e1rentals as our accounts are maxed out and we need to delete pages regularly to keep from maxing our limits out.

Please explain or fix for me. Thank you. Please respond to the tara@e1rentals email as I am the manager and do not want to access Johns emails to check for a response. Thank you.

Ok, just to make sure, you're going to - for example- tara@e1rentals.com and clicking "edit mailbox". Then, you're clicking on the dropdown for the storage and choosing 5GB and hitting Save. And it is giving you an error message that you don't have that upgrade? Could you send me a screenshot of this?

I've done the upgrade for john@ and didn't get an error. I need to look into why you're getting one.

Ok, so you're trying to do the upgrade for 2GB. You paid for 5GB, so try selecting that one.

I added two upgrades to my email storage and it still has not applied and I'm still getting those quota emails about being 95% full.  When will they be applied?  The first one I did was over 2 hours ago and the other one just recently.

Thanks

@elyzabethv​ I went on my settings for email.  It says using 1/3 but still can't apply on my own.  It's saying I don't have upgrade and taking me to the upgrade page, where I can see the 1 out of 3 being used.  How do I apply to my individual email?  As of this morning, still getting the quota error.

Thanks

So I see a 2GB upgrade applied to cris@ and a 5GB upgrade applied to jayme@. Both are active. 
cris@ is using 1734.41M of 2000M

jayme@ is using 2213.48M of 5000M

 

Which one are you getting this notification for?

@elyzabethv​ For Cris.  I purchased (2) 2gb upgrades recently because I kept getting the same quota email.  I should have just did the 5GB upgrade but don't know how to apply the two upgrades I just purchased within the last week or so.
