George Mason’s e-mail system is the primary way the university sends faculty, staff, and students updates and information on topics ranging from available retirement programs to campus emergency alerts. However, many of these messages end up bouncing back because recipients’ mailboxes are full. To help remedy this problem, the Information Technology Unit (ITU) offers tips on how to optimize your university e-mail account to ensure that all official messages from George Mason are delivered without delay.

  • Delete unneeded or old e-mails on a regular basis so they don’t build up and take up space. This will ensure that you stay beneath your George Mason e-mail box quota. For more information on how to do this, click here.
  • If you will be away for an extended period, set up your university e-mail to forward messages to another account. For more information on how to do this, click here.
  • Remember to periodically delete unneeded or old e-mails in your “Sent” and “Trash” folders, as these files will still take up space in your e-mail box.
