Please note: Webmail shows all folders using storage on the server, if you have a POP3 connection set up, this connection only accesses the servers Inbox to download a copy of all emails and in most configurations leaves a copy of emails on the server. Please keep this in mind if you encounter emails you believe to have been deleted.

Mail clients such as Outlook, Windows Live Mail, Thunderbird and Apple Mail all have built in facilities for checking disk usage, but as we don't know your own configurations in these mail clients, the only way of checking your usage we would advise is via webmail. Webmail checks your disk usage directly on the server and is very rarely incorrect.
