From time to time I get the message below and the intended recipient does not know how to rectify. Anyone able to help?

"Your message to was automatically rejected:

The recipient will need to remove emails from their inbox (download them or delete them).

As above.
They have a limited amount of space in their webmail email box & NEED to clear some of the old junk to make room for incoming emails

Thanks. Recipient has 11 emails in Inbox.

Has a number of folders containing a number of emails. Is it necessary to empty the folders?

All folders, including Inbox, count towards the total storage.

they need to contact their email provider. I will include emails in sent, spam, and deleted folders.

Tell them to go to their "folders" tab
Look under there for how much space each folder is using & at the bottom will be the total space used.

Delete the millions of old emails they have cluttering the servers inbox.
It's the cyber equivalent of hoarding.

These days with gmail, people have got lazy and never delete their emails.
