The items that are marked for deletion are placed in the Deleted Items folder. When the deleted folder exceeded 30MB, the oldest email will be automatically removed. These items cannot be restored easily; therefore it is critical to mark only the items that need deleting.

Junk Items – 30 MB:
Junk folder is where all your emails which been filtered as SPAM are kept. When the Junk folder exceeded 30MB, the oldest email will be automatically removed. You are advised to review your Junk folder frequently.
