Have you allocated enough space for e-mail in your .mac account?
You may want to up your space and try to remove old mail from your inbox and sent message folder by saving it to your local machine.
This happens to me sometimes. I'll forget to remove messages off...then suddenly someone will send a huge e-mail...with a ton of photos or something. Then my box will start to bounce messages back to people.
Maybe this will help you out?Mac G5 2 GHz 500GB 3 GB RAM, Mac OS X (10.4.4)

I also deleted my inbox messages from the .mac website, but D'oh!....it deleted it on my computer too! It wasn't supposed to do that, so now I lost about 80 messages I needed.

Yeah...uh...you should probably setup a "New Mailbox" on your Mac before you start deleting things. This info might be too late in your case. Call it what you like...but highlight all the messages you want to save but don't want to have counted against your inbox quota. Although I have to say 600 MB for e-mail is rather large. You should most certainly be able to hold more than 80 messages. Unless you are receiving a ton of photos, videos and music.
Check your trash before you do anything else. Your messages should go there first before they are permanently removed from the server. A resuce mission is in order.
Also, remember that your mail stays sync'd across you local mail reader and the web based reader. Which I think you just learned.Mac G5 2 GHz 500GB 3 GB RAM, Mac OS X (10.4.4)
