Thanks

By deleting items from your Mail store. Perhaps you have attachments you no longer need, perhaps you have sent items with large attachments, perhaps people sent you things like videos . . . your library is where Mail stores all that stuff. I'd advise against going directly into the V2 library and deleting things. Do it via Mail itself.
