What can I do to help?
Reduce Your Mailbox Size
Try to reduce the size of your mail file and your archive database, as smaller mailboxes and archives migrate faster and with less issues than large ones. There is a maximum of 50 GB of storage available for your mailbox and another 50 GB for your archive.
Delete unnecessary or unwanted messages that you do not need to retain. If you have questions about retention of particular records, please check the University's Record Retention Schedule on the www.american.edu/policies/ page.
