Emails may not seem like they take up much digital space, but once you add a few thousand every couple of weeks they can add up. Thankfully, there’s a way to check just how much storage your emails are using.
Right-click on your inbox, then click on “properties”. There, click on the option that says “folder size”.
You’ll be able to see just how much storage you’re using, which includes both local data and server data.
