Mbx file still large after deleting embedded attachments

Postby Garfield » Sun May 31, 2009 3:44 am

Hi,

I have been saving some disk space by deleting embedded attachments from my old mails by using a script. This way, I have been able to reduce mbx files for one folder from about 300 MB to 200 KB.

However, for one folder, the mbx file kept the same size even after deleting most embedded attachments. This mbx file is now 297 MB and the corresponding mail folder contains 550 messages with only about 10 of them still having an attachment no larger than 3 MB.

Any idea what went wrong? Thanks for your support.

Did you also compress that folder :?:
See Folder > Compress Folder
or Compress all folders

See if that changes anything. ;)

That seems to work. Size dropped from 300 to 60 MB after compressing for the first time, and to 6 MB after the second compression.

Solved, thanks!
