How can I change the name of a mailbox?
Sometimes it will be useful to change the mailbox name without losing the received emails, an example of this utility is when we want to reset the mailbox space, because although we can have unlimited mailboxes, these are limited to 10GB each, if you want to avoid the cost of 20€/year for each extra 10GB, a good trick is simply to rename the mailbox, this way we will keep all the old emails and we can recreate a new one with the original name, leaving from zero the counter. To change the mailbox name you must:
- Login to the administration panel of the website in question.
- Click on Email Accounts in the Email section
- Click on options
- Select Change Mailbox Name
- Enter the new name and click Save as shown in this video:
Either because you do not want to lose the new emails sent to your old mailbox or because it is a strategy to increase the space in your mailbox, once you have renamed the mailbox you will have to recreate the old one by following these instructions.
