    if I know correctly , when we subscribe to any host , there is a default email in your server , cPanel side.

    if never clear will lag your site ? as times go by or no need.

    That default mail, is a catch all mailbox. If you are on a shared hosting or even a dedicated one and it has a low amount of hard disk space, if someone spams that domain, yeah, your website can go down once it reaches that limit (if you use the space to store other things like database). The best way is to limit that mailbox. Depending on host, it is limited to 1GB.

    If your website lags due to mailbox capacity, do yourself a favor and find a new host.

    so by default there is a standard limit by the host right and tactically don't need to bother much?

    Technically, yes. It should be a default limit, which is almost different at each hoster. Just check the default email account.

    Hard disk space doesn't affect CPU and RAM

    some claim if your disk space don't left any more much does affect the site speed?

    Well, in special cases, it will. If you're maxing out RAM and then you'll use virtual memory but you have to both have a maxed RAM and maxed disk. You're going to have errors anyways with a full disk because your log files will be full, Apache will probably crash, etc.

    this is why perhaps hosting companies will email you if your currently hosting plan can't support huge traffic or if your site keep adding massive videos , photos etc?
