USC Email’s Limited Space

Unfortunately, USC gives each email account only 75 MB storage space. I feel like I’m living in the dark ages of the Internet, when hard disks were expensive and bandwidth even more so. I quickly maxed out the space limit, but it’s not a problem thanks to Google Gmail. For my own curiosity, I shall record here that 75 MB of emails came out to 5441 messages. I’ve now transferred the emails to my local machine using Mozilla Thunderbird and IMAP. At least they offer POP and IMAP access– a big plus.
