I just sent in a few contest entries to contests@efilmcritic.com and they all bounced back with errors that the hbsdvd@aol.com mailbox is full.

I've tried a couple of times over the past week or so with the same result.

Occasionally, our contest mailbox will fill up. We try to clear it out as quickly as possible. You should be able to send your email now.

This is the first time I've attempted to enter any again since my last post and they are bouncing back as full again.

At this point, I have no idea which contests I've entered previously that made it through or not so apologies if you received a duplicate as usually I would use a visited link as a clue that I have and the bounce backs are just a generic mailbox is full warning rather mentioning any contest name.

Guess I'll try again in a couple of weeks after all the current contests have expired so I can make sure and not enter multiple times for something.

Personal note.. think Diggers, Fay Grim, Oscar Shorts, Banacek, The Tiger and the Snow, The Dead Girl were the ones I wanted to enter that couldn't.

Still full (or again). Perhaps switch to something like Gmail for more storage space?

Yeah, I've gotten that for a few months by now. Now when I see a film I really want to win, I'll try it and recieve the same bad news when my extry is sent back to me. Still, I haven't given up since I might miss an opporunity but it still keeps happening again...and again...and again.

My apologies. Like Ben said the mailbox tends to full up pretty quick. And we're talking thousands and thousands. Sometimes I go to a screening in the morning and its full by afternoon.

Just keep trying. If its full one day, just try the next.

Sorry for the inconvenience. We have a lot of readers who likes the free stuff. Smile

How much storage space AOL give you? Is it worth it to switch to an account that offers more (if they still are offering small amounts they use to anyway)?

Quite a bit. I made sure of it.
