It’s wise to keep tabs on how much storage your e-mail account has remaining. If you run out, you’ll be unable to send e-mails until you free up some space by deleting old messages. Luckily, it’s easy to check how much space you have left.

From Outlook Web Access:

1.       Click the gear icon in the upper right-hand corner of the page and choose “Options”.

Gear icon

2.       In the pane to the left, click on the “General” section to expand it, then click “My Account”.

3.       You can see how much space you have remaining at the bottom of the page under “Mailbox usage”.
