I'm a bit confused (make that VERY confused).  I keep getting this "Quota limit reached" message.   Apple iPhone rep tells me that I have to start deleting my 25,000 Mac Mail messages.


Thing is, I don't have time to delete even half those messages.  If I have to, I will but is there another easier way?


I don't really need Mac Mail on my iPhone anyway.  I'd like to just delete it all together buy iPhone Apple rep said that I can't because it's synced?


I don't get it.


Please help!  Whatever answer anyone gives me, please don't make it too "techie" --as in assuming I know more than I do.


BTW, I am still using 10.5.8 on m Mac Book Pro.  Making an appointment today with Apple store to get this done.  Can't do it myself as I have some tech glitches that may cause problems if I try to do do this--so I need professonal "Genius Bar" help.


Just thought I would add that in case it's relevant to this process.   

MacBook Pro, Mac OS X (10.5.8)
