    How to Delete and Recover E-Mail
    Using IBM Notes
     
     
     
     
     

    Have you checked how full you email account is lately? The ending of a school year is a great time to spend a few minutes to organize your e-mail. This will make it easier for you to find current email and also will help our server, which is getting filled up rather quickly.

     

    Before we begin, here are several key ideas to consider when using our school e-mail:

     

    1. IBM Notes is for school business only. It is not meant for personal correspondence, or any personal business.

    2. You may not send any "ad" type materials in the school e-mail. This will result in a loss of privileges for a certain time period.

    3. If you wish to send a message or announcement to the entire district, it should be sent to Ray Granieri with a request for him to send it to the entire district.

    4. E-mail attachments take up space on the server, especially if you are sending the email to more than one person. Pictures are especially large. Please check the size of attachments before sending. Is there another way to distribute the attachment? You might consider sharing them on One-Drive.

    5. You should delete emails regularly. Don't forget to check the "sent" folder also. Delete these files too.

    **6. Any deleted file is not actually permanently deleted. It can be recovered if you need it using Mail Meter. So don't be afraid to delete emails.

     

    How to Delete E-Mail From Your School Account

     

    Deleting emails from your account is relatively simple. Just follow these steps:

    1. You can check your email account usage at the top left.

    Select the emails you wish to delete.

    Remember to use CTRL C or CTRL S to select more than one at a time.

     Then click the trash can at the top to send the emails to your Trash.

    Select emails and click move to trash

    3. Don't forget to do the same for the "Sent" folder. You may have a lot of emails to delete here as well.

     

    4. Now, click on the Trash Folder.

    You will see all the emails you have deleted.
    If you have accidentally deleted an email you want to save, right click on it and select the "RESTORE" command.
    Then select "EMPTY TRASH" at the  top of the page.

    The emails will disappear and are no longer in your mail box.

    It might take a while, but soon you will have more space available in your mail box. And the server will be happy.
