VNM3043 -- MAILBOX IS FULL
The message cannot be delivered because the
recipient's mailbox contains the maximum number of
messages, as set by the system administrator. The
recipient must delete some messages before any
other messages can be delivered.
The maximum message limit for a user's mailbox is
10,000. The default message limit is 1000 messages.
Administrators can set message limits using the
Mailbox Settings function available in the
Manage User menu (MUSER).
When a user's mailbox reaches the limit, the
user must delete some of the messages before
the mailbox can accept any more incoming messages.

The current nym server approach is to use an encrypted reply block to send a
user new mail. This way the nym server doesn't know who the user is. If users
have to actively retrieve their mail, then the feds could install a packet
sniffer on the remailers net link to find out the real email address of an
