This document discusses voice mailbox capacity and warnings.
Possible Reasons for Reaching the Voice Mailbox Capacity
There are messages in the deleted folder waiting to be removed. The messages are automatically removed after 90 days, however, they can be manually removed. The messages in this folder are included in the quota used calculation.
- A common misconception is that voice messages are deleted when the email notification is deleted. These are separate systems. So, deleting a voicemail notification in email does not delete it in the voice mail system.

On the top-right corner of the list, click the 'Empty Deleted Items' button.
