This is entirely between you and your ISP. Some don't have any stated 
limits, others are ferocious.

Unless you have some overiding reason to leave stuff there (eg wanting to 
collect it again from a different location or via a different machine), 
it's generally best to set your mail client to delete all read items. Or 
set it to delete all read mail older than a day or two.

Note that with POP mail, it is your mail client which remembers which msgs 
have or haven't been read. The POP mailbox is entirely ignorant.

If anyone wants a Windows utility to log into their mailbox and delete 
mail, read or unread, Mailmaint from www.magsys.co.uk/apps/mail/ is OK. 
Alternatively, Mail Inspector 2000 is a versatile icon tray tool which can 
do the same thing, and also functions as a mini-mailer and mailbox 
checker/alert for new mail. That is freeware from www.idev.ch - it has 
occasional resource problems when dealing with very large numbers of 
mails, say >100, but shut down/restart fixes it.
