How do I check why my mailbox is taking so much space? How do I remove unwanted emails from it?

You can login to your mailbox (email account) via webmail at this address:

http://www.yourdomain.com/webmail
Username: email address
Password: the password of that email account

[ replace email address with your cPanel username if you need to check the main mailbox ]

Once logged in, please select Squirrelmail. In Squirrelmail, click on Folders to view all folders in your email account and subscribe to all of them then refresh the folder list.

Now you can access all folders including spam box and check the emails in them. 

If you have too many emails in a particular folder that you want to delete, here is one way to do that: There is a configuration option in Squirrelmail from the top menu

Options : Display Preferences : Number of Messages per Page: 

I usually set it to view 500 per page to go through junk emails quickly by selecting All and deleting it. It will take a couple of minutes to delete thousands of emails this way but you will be sure you are not deleting system files. Be careful not to delete emails you want by deselecting them.
