you have to either compact the INBOX (right click, compact this folder), or compact all your pop3 folders (File | Compact Folders) or set the preference that makes us automatically compact folders when a certain amount of space is wasted (Edit | Preferences | Mail & Newsgroup Settings| Disk Space) compact folders when it will save over XX KB
