I have installed Office 2013 with Windows 8 Pro. The Outlook 2013 keep popping up notifications information “Your IMAP server wants to alert you to the following: Email is too large, limit size to less than 20MB“. The error message appear again every 30 minutes. However, I go to email boxes and there is nothing in my Outbox, drafts or “send later” files. Yesterday I had sent a messages, but the attachments are around 15MB sizes and did go through. Now I am able to send and receive messages through my own Godaddy hosted email server, but can’t get rig of notifications.
If you setup an IMAP account in Outlook 2013 and get the “Your IMAP server wants to alert you to the following: Email is too large, limit size to 20MB”, try these tips to fix the issues.
* Switch your account from IMAP to POP account. That seems to sovle the problem.
* Try deleting the specific email account from your Outlook 2013 config and re-added to check if it works.
* If they are still not working, you may need to wait for Microsoft’s solution or updates.
