How big are my web mail messages?

I know that we don’t all use Outlook for managing our emails so I thought it only fair to offer web mail client users some information on message sizes.

The Size of each of your messages is displayed in the last column alongside the From, Subject and Received headings above your mail entries. To sort your messages by their size just click on the Size link. This will place your largest messages at the top of your mail, and you can then quickly decide which messages to keep or delete to reduce your mail usage quota.

How big are my Outlook email folders?

Looking to weed your Outlook email? Wondering how much space your email folders are taking? It is easy to find out the total size of your emails or size of individual folders. All you have to do is:

  1. Right click on your Inbox
  2. Select Properties from the context menu
  3. On the General tab click on the Folder size button
  4. Outlook will generate details on total and sub folder sizes

This information might help you to decide which folders to target for a good clearout.
