Author/Date folders.mail2 still big after deleding 500 emails
22/09/2005 3:23pm
I made a backup of all my emails so I could delete a lot of emails to save space on my memory stick. After deleting about 500 emails (530 in total) the file folders.mail2 is still 85mb (the same size as before). I also deleted everything from the spam and trash. Does anyone know how to reduce the size of that file?

Thanks in advance,

Have you used the option 'compact folders', found under 'file' in the main menu?

Just tried that but it only recovers 5MB

Well thats all there is to recover then.

You can track down size usage by right clicking on folders and selecting properties. The sub-folders sizes are listed there.

Don't forget to clean out your SENT folder also.
