My mailbox is showing full, but I don’t have any visible mails 

You may find that even after deleting messages from your folders, your mailbox may still show as being full. This is normally narrowed down to either the folders needing to be compacted (removes all messages that are pending delete), or that there are hidden folders with messages in which are not displaying by default. 

How to Compact a folder  

  1. First, you need to log in to Webmail using your email address or mailbox username and password. You can do this by clicking the link below: 
     
    https://webmail.lcn.com
  1. When logged in, select a folder (selected folders will be highlighted in pink) and then select the gear icon in the bottom left corner. 
  1. You will then see an option to compact the folder and clicking this will delete any messages in that folder which are currently pending deletion. 
  1. Repeat this across all your folders and this will clear any space held by messages which are pending deletion.

    https://webmail.lcn.com

  1. You see options on the right hand side and you need to now untick the Do not show deleted messages option. 
     
  1. If you go back to your emails, you should now see all your emails alongside any that have been flagged for deletion.

    https://webmail.lcn.com

I want to clear my mailbox when I log out, is this possible? 

When you delete any email, Webmail itself places the mail into ‘Deleted Items’. You then need to delete it from here, but you can save yourself time by asking Webmail to clear this folder when you log out. 

  1. First, you need to log in to Webmail using your email address or mailbox username and password. You can do this by clicking the link below: 
     
    https://webmail.lcn.com
  1. Next, select Settings and then choose the Server Settings option.  
  1. From here, there are a lot of deleting options you can set on the server, but to delete messages from your trash folder when you log out, tick the Clear “Deleted items” on logout option and select Save.
  1. Next time you log out, this will delete all the emails held in the deleted items folder.  

For this to function correctly, please make sure you are clicking log out and not simply closing the browser down.
