Message storage - how it works
When you have an account and make an email address private, message storage kicks in.
Message storage comes into play in two ways. It governs:
- the number of messages allowed across your owned email addresses
- the number of starred messages
When are messages recycled?
The oldest, unstarred messages are removed.
If your storage limit is 100 messages, and you star 25 messages, and you own 3 email addresses, you'll be allowed 75 messages across those 3 email addresses.
Once you have 100 messages stored, the oldest unstarred ones will be removed.
Getting more storage
You can spin the wheel regularly to win more credits, which will increase the available message storage you get. You can also buy more storage.
