    Lets say I receive 1000 submissions and they each contain files bigger than 6MB. My mail service will be overwhelmed since I dont have that much space. How can I go past that problem.

    The files are not sent to your email address. It's only their links that appear in the notification which is emailed. So there's no need to worry about your email account being overwhelmed. However, Free accounts only have 100 MB of space in total (see Pricing page) and if you expect to receive 1000 submissions each containing files larger than 6 MB that's at least 6,000 MB (approximately 5.86 GB) which would require at least a Premium account.
