There could be a option where the folders, emails are compressed ( gzipped ) so
that filesize comes down way too low...
A typical project folder that keeps all *ALL* emails just for a future reference
Specially if they are just archives...


Reproducible: Always



Expected Results:  
A option to compress like gzip the files to create a drastic reduction in filesize
