Microsoft to double Catmail inbox quotas

Friday, August 30, 2013
Sean O'Malley  

Coming soon to a Catmail inbox near you: even more email storage.  

Some time before the end of November, 2013 Catmail users will see their email quotas go from 25 GB to 50 GB. 

This is the second time this year that Microsoft has given undergraduate and alumni inboxes a substantial storage increase. The first was during this summer's Catmail upgrade, when quotas went from 10 GB to 25 GB.

According to an Aug 29 Microsoft blog post, the increase applies to all Exchange Online and Office 365 service plans, including Office 365 Education A1 - the plan that Catmail uses.

Catmail users do not need to do anything to obtain the new quota. Microsoft will apply it automatically some time between now and the end of November.  

If you receive any messages asking you to log into a web form to verify your account information or activate your new quota, please delete them or drag them to your Junk E-Mail folder. Such messages are scams designed to obtain your username and password.
