how to cleanup mail folder

Postby sergio » 21 May 2009 21:33

hello gentlemen

i am a new user and have a little question:
i have 4 messages in INBOX and 14 in OUTBOX and trash is empty; all plain text and no attachement, so it should weight about 100ko.. but the mail folder is 16mo! by opening it with note pad i saw all old messages deleted from the trash from the beggining; how can i cleanup this folder and save space on my usb key?? if i just remove the inside of the folder i will lose everything! i tried to do something like EXPORT-IMPORT to save messages on the side and restore later but could not achieve;
thnak you for any idea!
best regards from france

Hi Sergio

You can't pack the file. si.Mail is reusing empty space when new messages arrive. There are probably a few blocks of space that can't be reused but their count should be very small.

Regards,
Miha
