User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.1) Opera 7.54u1 [en] Build Identifier: Thunderbird 1.0 (20041206) Outlook version: Outlook 2003 My outlook .pst file is 266 MB. When trying to import mail from Outlook into Mozilla, it completely fills up the remaining space on my hard drive (a bit over 2.5 GB) and still has about 1000 more messages to import from Outlook. I'm not sure the format that TB uses to store its e-mails, but this should definitely be looked at because I'm probably looking at 3-3.5 GB to store something that Microsoft manages to cram into 266 MB. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Obtain a 266 MB .pst file from a generous individual 2. Import from Outlook Actual Results: My hard drive fills up completely Expected Results: It should have found a way to compress the incoming messages in order to save hard drive space. A 10-15 fold increase in filesize is a bit much.
