How do i reset my storage limit?
A storage limit is exactly that: a limit. Imagine your shoebox where you keep your Christmas cards and letters: it only holds so much before it gets stuffed. You either need to get more storage (another or a bigger shoe box) or you need to throw out some of the cards and letters to make room for new ones.
Now let's discuss your yahoo mail: yahoo and gmail and hotmail and all these other free email services have a "virtual shoebox" for your "mail." Typically, these get clogged from spam, pictures, videos, or music files that get shared / sent / received. I recommend starting with looking for your spam folder: empty it. If it had been important you would have rescued it already and marked it as "not spam."
Check your "sent" folder. Chances are there is a record of every email there you've ever sent since you first began using yahoo mail. Not *that* familiar with yahoo mail (lately) I can't tell you if it's sortable by columns, like "from, to, date, attachment, size" -- but if it is, then sorting is a great way to get rid of large files fast: sorting by size (from largest to smallest) will put the very biggest files near the top of your screen and you can delete a huge block of them at once.
Sorting by date, oldest to newest, puts the oldest at the top and if you really don't care about stuff from last year (or last month) you can pick an arbitrary (or meaningful!) point in time and clip everything beyond it.
Sorting by "from" is a great way to wipe out huge sections of content delivery mail, like from facebook notifications, or twitter feeds, or travel agencies, etc., or even to group all the emails you get from that joker who thinks re-sending other people's jokes makes them more likeable.
The point is, you need to start trashing-deleting old or unwanted emails then emptying your trash on a regular basis.
