What To Do If Gmail Storage Quota Exceeded Error Strikes?

Google offers around 15 GB storage limits, which is spread across Google Drive, Google Photos and Gmail. In case your Google Account is through school or work, 30 GB will be provided. Google also offers more storage but it will cost you and hence many users prefer the 15 GB limit which comes without any cost. Most of these users will never realize that the storage limit is reaching its end and they will not be able to send or receive email further. As the email, usage for some users is very less and hence the storage limit will not exceed for them. However, for professional users, story can be different. Improper management and excessive usage of emailing can hit the 15 GB limit soon and can affect work progress as well. At this point, deletion can be a smart action but it will not solve your problem permanently.

What Exactly Happens When Gmail Storage Limit Is Reached?

Some users have concerns that whether the old emails are automatically deleted when this storage limit of 15 GB is reached. However, to their concern, Google does not do any of such things. It will just stop receiving any email further and will not let you send the emails from that specific ID. Since this 15 GB of storage is shared amongst all the services, Gmail account (emailing) will be affected because of over storage in the Drive and other services. Deletion from Google drive can help in this case. Previously 15 GB of storage sounded more than enough but now as other email services have offered terabytes of limits, and emailing has become more powerful this storage limit is reached soon. It is suggested to keep a check on the storage space used-up and left in order to maintain it. For this, you can follow the below mentioned steps;

  • Go to
  • In the bottom left, storage usage can be seen by hovering mouse over it.
  • A small window will pop-up showing complete details of your Google usage.
  • You can also visit to view the details.

Probable Reasons for Error Message

Sometimes despite of the availability of storage space, this error message is prompted. This means that if you get this “storage quota exceeded” message, it does not always mean that the storage limit has reached. First users have to check the storage limit and then decide what should be the next step. There are below mentioned probable reasons why this this message can be prompted and what does it means:
  1. The message can be prompted while forwarding email via or to another Gmail account, which has, its storage limit exceeded.
  2. In case, one of the filters is redirecting the email through full Gmail account.
  3. If you are using Google Apps account and for your domain, email account is full

How to Resolve This Storage Quota Error Issue?

  • Check you Gmail account if you have any forwarding going on through “Mail Settings” >> “Forwarding & POP/IMAP”. If you do and it is another account, check if that particular account has reached its quota.
  • Check under “Mail Settings” under >> “Filters” if any filter is set to send emails via some other account. If it is set so, check the storage quota limit.
  • Deletion can be another right action done on such erroneous Gmail account. You can log-in to the Gmail account and delete emails from Spam folder and Deleted Item (Trash) folder to delete them permanently. You can also delete emails, which are irrelevant, download attachments, and delete them (if unwanted). This can partially free some space from your Gmail account.
  • You can also delete some data from the Goggle Drive or Google Photos.
  • Configuration of Gmail account with desktop email client can be a suitable solution to maintain the storage limits.

Email storage limitation is applied to all the email applications and services. Moreover, users must keep checking the growing size of this storage in order to maintain the email data.

Yahoo Email Quota Exceeded! What To Do Next?

Storage limit is one of the important parameter based on which users opt for the emailing service. It is important to have large storage limit so that the limit does not run out after few years of usage. It completely depends on the type of account which to be configured with and usage. Yahoo Mail comes with exceptional features and is part of millions of users across the globe for emailing. Earlier it provided unlimited email storage space but for now, it has been restricted to 1 TB. This restriction has raised a concern where there are chances to have Yahoo Email quota exceeded. This blog discusses about apprehensions for such lack of email storage in Yahoo Mail account and important steps to be taken afterwards.

How to Know How Much Email Storage Space Is Left?

Before getting worried, it is better to know if your Yahoo Mail account is running out if email storage space. Let us first know the total space available for account. Yahoo Mail service was launched with provision of 4 MB space which was soon increased to 100 MB. Later on this space was again increased to 1 GB and soon it was completely free for Yahoo users. The free Yahoo accounts came with unlimited storage space, which was the foremost advantage of this email service. Finally as per the recent availability, the storage space is restricted again to 1 TB. For a personal account, this storage limit is more than enough. However, a professional account can have different story. Professional email account can have millions of emails and heavy attachments embedded with emails. Professional accounts also have important emails in it and no user will risk coming across such situation where the Yahoo email quota is exceeded and user is unable to access the account anymore.

So how to know the email storage space left for your account? You can follow the below mentioned steps to know the space available:

  • Log in into your Yahoo Mail email account.
  • Go to Settings icon available in the right-most corner.
  • Click on this icon and then select Settings from the explored options.
  • From the available options, choose Accounts to view the details.
  • In the left pane, you will be able to see the total space and used space.

Limits for Yahoo Mail Account Storage Size Is Approaching

If the size of the email storage is about to end soon, it is important to free up some space. For this, users can perform various strategies. Some of the workaround are mentioned below which can help in such situations where users have reached the email storage limits.

Method 1: Delete the Unwanted Emails

Not all emails residing in the email accounts are important. For unofficial emails, the unwanted emails can be deleted and the space for those emails can be freed. Users can select these unwanted messages and delete them permanently in order to free up the space for new message.

Method 2: Backing Up Yahoo Account

Backup of Yahoo Mail emails can instantly give you relief from issues with email storage limitation. Users can either manually copy down the emails to PDFs or Word files or can configure Yahoo accounts with desktop email clients in order to save the emails locally. However, Yahoo imposes restrictions for free-accounts in some regions, so this configuration is available for restricted users only.


Since there is limitation to email server storage space, it is important to always keep a check on growing size of emails. Yahoo account users for personal accounts will find 1 TB enough but users who are using it for professional purpose can end up reaching the limit soon. There are also some external utilities, which can help in the backing up process of emails like Yahoo email Backup software. This tool also has an optional functionality of “Delete after Download” which allows the deletion of emails after backing up the emails from Yahoo Mail account. In this way, users can choose appropriate steps and avoid getting Yahoo Email quota exceeded.
