|Author/Date||folders.mail2 still big after deleding 500 emails|
|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.
