Microsoft is now enforcing a storage space limit that it forgot about for eight years.
Back in 2013 when Microsoft migrated Hotmail users over to Outlook, the transition came with a 15GB space limit. The problem is, the software giant never enforced this limit, meaning users could use more than 15GB without repercussion.
Now, Microsoft has caught on to this problem and is locking ex-Hotmail users to the original 15GB limit. This means that everyone who has allowed their email to overflow past this limit cannot send or receive emails.
Microsoft has sent an email to people with stuffed inboxes to notify them of this predicament. In the email, the software giant recommends that people start trimming down their inbox to get it back into shape.
There ain't no such thing as a free lunch. Forever.However, Microsoft is keen to let users know of a second way to free up space—one that will allow people to preserve their emails. If someone were to upgrade their Outlook account to a paid Microsoft 365 one, they would get more inbox space and free up their emails one more.
