|Author/Date||Broken node in folders|
|Who's got the biggest folders?
A not-too-pc-literate friend's email folders has grown to over 60MB with dozens of folders. When replacing the stable version 1.84 to 1.86test34, she gets the message on startup that there is a broken node in her folders and can it be deleted. After backing up, she answers yes, but it is still asking after openning a few times. Any ideas?
|WHEW! that is insane! I always make it a habit to clear out my email periodically. I try not to fall into the bad habit of using email to archive all my messages. I have seen people with 4 years of messages in their email client DB...talk about scary files!
|My 18 month old folder:
% ls -l folders.mail2 -rw-rw-r-- 1 matthew project 59396410 Aug 28 09:40 folders.mail2
Yup pretty much 60mb too.. :)
Is the install using a mail or mail2 file?
Better yet, is the "Convert Folders" in the File menu available? (If it's not it's a v2 file)
Removing bad nodes sometimes takes a few goes to weed them all out. They are created by crashes usually.
