    I posted this a month or so ago, but was never able to fix the problem even after emailing support.

    I have a .msn email account, but even if I delete all the email from my account, it still says I am using space.

    As you can see in the picture I am only using 304k, but the bar on the right says I am using 1.5MB.

    I am so confused.

    What else could be using this space ?

    (ranchoweb is not that great so the pic might now always show up :( )

    It also says you have a bunch of files in your trash can, empty it! It counts too.

    Good idea posting the screen shot.

    Actually Trash Can material does not count.

    Plus it's only 12 emails.

    Even though the trash don't count, maybe there's a glitch. Empty it anyway. "Only 12 emails" could actually be a lot of space if (for examples) their attachments.

    No harm would come from emptying it, right?

    Then, of course, there's always the thought it's a conspiracy by M$ to get you to pay for a bigger email box :p

    jonifen pffff...

    does hotmail take into consideration the contacts people may have in their address book?

    what bout the msn calendar etc?

    cuz it mentions "your 2.0 MB of storage" (we all know MS's style of figures... 40mins to install win98 even on a 1.2ghz duron?! how did it finish in 5 then?)

    I empty my trash can often, but still is says that.

    Yesterday I deleted all emails from my inbox and it said I was using .6MB of space.

    But I had 0 emails in all my folders. I am confused :-(
