Hello,

What are you using to check your email that you are seeing this feature?

My mailbox is full and I need to make room, but I want to have access to the e-mails and I don't know what compacting them will do.

I am seeing compact in the folder actions button on the lower left of the screen.

Hello,

Compacting folders will permanently remove all messages flagged for deletion from the Inbox when you log-off. If there are no messages flagged to be deleted nothing will happen and this will not decrease the amount of space being used on the server. If you need to keep the messages you currently have and increase the size of your mail box quota we do offer email storage upgrades. 2GBs of storage for $1/ month 5GBs of storage for $2/ month or 10GBs of storage for $3/ month.
