I don't know that much about Macs, but I've seen a similar problem on Windows machines.

Probably, somewhere in the bowels of your settings (either for email or for your computer itself) is a place which sets a maximum size on your home directory. Your home directory has now reached that maximum size.

Since I haven't a clue where that setting is on your computer, the simplest thing is to move files out of your home directory temporarily (maybe created a directory called "homeBackup" or something equally findable).

Then, when you've got things working again, check with folks who know about Macs and see if there's anyway to increase the maximum size of that directory.

Thanks! I tried that, but to no avail. Luckily, my next commenter had the brains to do what I can never remember to do, which is to find the help online. I'm in the process of seeing whether the advice he found will work.

I had a feeling it wasn't that simple. Good luck.

I appreciate the thought. A lot.
