My messages have been archived. How can I get them back?

This automated mail is triggered when you have left more than 1Mb of mail on the server. In order to retrieve those messages, you will need to reply to the original message sent to you requesting that the mail be put back on the server for you to download.

You will only receive this warning if your mail application is configured to use the POP protocol and you have the option to Leave Mail on Server activated.

Information Systems do not recommend that you use POP. If you wish to read your email in multiple locations, your email client should be configured to use the IMAP protocol. Neither should you Leave Mail on Server. To switch off this option, instructions can be found at:
