Transfer Quota

For Personal Email, the transfer quota functions as a limit on the amount of money we are willing to spend on each user, based on our income from advertisements. It is actually quite a bit more than our typical user uses. If you need more, you will have to upgrade to a Professional Email account.

For Professional Email, the transfer quota is the amount of transfer that you payed for. We encourage you to purchase a large enough transfer quota for your highest monthly use in the year.

  1. How does the transfer quota work?

    We measure the size of each incoming email message, and add them together. When that total goes over your monthly transfer quota, our server rejects further email to you until the end of the month.

    At the beginning of the month, we reset all transfer totals back to zero.

  2. So you measure only incoming traffic?

    At present yes, we measure only incoming traffic. We have found that outgoing bandwidth closely tracks incoming bandwidth.

    If outgoing bandwidth becomes a problem, rest assured that we will start restricting outgoing transfer. If we do, we will restrict based on incoming or outgoing transfer, whichever is higher for the account.

  3. How much of my transfer quota have I used so far this month?

    The bandwidth and storage quotas are displayed when you log in.

  4. Do you care if I hit my quota?

    If you do so regularly, we will require you to use a Professional Email account.

    If you're already using a Professional Email account, we will remind you that you would benefit from a larger quota.
