Delete old mail on server

My friend was kind of enough to set up an email account on her domain for me, but somehow I think my mail is saving a copy on the server as she just told me my mail is taking up 150 MB! I only have about 20 email messages saved, so I know this must be the case.

My question is - how can I fix this? I’m using webmail at the moment and use Outlook Express at home. I feel bad and would like to fix this as soon as possible.


Is there any chance you have deleted email, but haven’t emptied/purged the trash folder? When you connect via the SquirrelMail webmail interface, click on the Trash folder to see if there is anything left over in it. Also, go ahead and click the “(purge)” link to the right of the Trash folder in the leftmost column showing all your mail folders.
