[Resolved] Inadvertent Mail Quota Warning Messages

Over the past several days some customers, with widomaker.com (or tni.net) e-mail accounts, reported receiving multiple unusual Mail Quota Warning e-mail messages, like the one, below. Additionally, the customers who received these messages were not close to reaching the maximum mailbox storage limit, which could generate a Quota Warning Message.

Subject: Mail Quota Warning

Your mailbox is now more than % full. If your mailbox reaches 100% full, you will not receive any more email. 
Please delete unwanted messages from your mailbox in order to continue receiving new messages.

These messages did come from our e-mail server provider, but were unintentional, and can be discarded.

Our e-mail server provider has informed us they resolved an issue, late this afternoon, with their quota warnings, so no further inadvertent Mail Quota Warning messages should be sent out.

As always, if you have a question about the legitimacy of a message you receive, please contact us to ask about it.

Just a reminder: Server storage limits for mailboxes only apply to mail on the server. Mail downloaded, via POP3, and stored on your own computer, is not counted in mail quotas.
