Your Yahoo Mail Storage Limit

Yahoo Mail provides 1 TB (a terabyte is the equivalent of about 200 high-definition movies) of online storage, which includes attachments. Filling all of this space might take a while, but it's possible, especially if some emails are large and full of attached files.

If you're nearing the upper limit of your storage quota in Yahoo Mail, free up some space. Empty the Trash and Spam folders, delete old messages with attachments, and back up your messages to another device.
