But, in fact, when I go to the directory .mozilla/dellache/pi3bt3lw.slt/Mail/omega.crm.umontreal.ca to control the size of each file, nothing has changed !!! Then, the size of the files Sent, Trash, ... becomes more and more important and I have to clean with my hands !!! (i.e. by doing the shell command rm Trash or rm sent in the directory .mozilla/dellache/pi3bt3lw.slt/Mail/omega.crm.umontreal.ca) How to solve this bug ? Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.Delete all the files in the Trash with Mozilla's mail Manager 2.go in the directory .mozilla/... where is your Mozilla file Trash (for me, it is the directory .mozilla/dellache/pi3bt3lw.slt/Mail/omega.crm.umontreal.ca) 3.Verify that nothing has change in the file Trash although the Mozilla's mail manager afirms that there are no e-mails in the directory Trash Actual Results: The size of the directory .mozilla/dellache/pi3bt3lw.slt/Mail/omega.crm.umontreal.ca can only be changeg by destroying the files Trash, Sent, ... with the shell command rm Trash, rm Sent, ... . Expected Results: Mozilla should have make the size of the file Trash equal to zero, as it seems to be the case by looking the Trash directory in the Mozilla's mail manager !!!
