Student Life

Undeliverable

The most dreaded word among avid e-mailers. Make sure this doesn’t happen to you!
The UST mailboxes have 150MB of storage. Accounts that reach this limit are unable to receive e-mail. At this time of year, that may mean missing interview requests and job offers!
Please:

  • Delete unnecessary e-mails in your Inbox.
  • Delete unnecessary e-mails in your Sent box.
  • Empty your Recycle Bin.
  • Save attachments as files, not e-mails.
  • Sort your boxes by size and delete the biggest files first. (Yup, that’s my lazy way out.)
