Although you may receive an email notification from our company regarding the quota of your mailbox we will never ask you to complete a form to increase your quota or resolve the problem you're experiencing. Not only should you be very cautious about the links you click in emails, you should be even more cautious about completing a form and supplying personal information (your name, email address, and password, for example). If you're unsure please just call us and we'll be happy to steer you in the right direction.
