You'll simply hit your quota, and any further messages will be deleted.

A lot of people have email addresses they only check every week or two
(or more!) on these free accounts.  They often have maxed out their
quota well before they check mail again.  I doubt one more such user
will bother yahoo too much.

Unless you need to share ultra-sensitive super-spy stuff with me, please
don't email me directly.  I will most likely see your post before I read
your mail, anyway.
