Fake emails: “Your mailbox storage has reached 95%”

Posted: Mon 4 May 2020, 2:36pm.

You might sometimes receive emails telling you that your inbox is almost full.

These emails are all fake, and if you follow the link you could put yourself and your personal information at risk. Please just delete emails like this.

Since the migration of all email accounts of Office 365, your email account has a huge amount of storage space (at least 50gb). Before the migration, we might have emailed you about storage space, making it harder to spot the fake messages. Now, you can safely ignore all emails about ‘upgrading your account’ or avoiding ‘running out of space’.
