User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-GB; rv:126.96.36.199) Gecko/2008070208 Firefox/3.0.1 Build Identifier: All Thunderbird has one large db file for my IMAP account, that does not go with the backup system built into Mac OS X. If on email changes, a huge file (several 100 MB) is marked as "changed" and therefore backed up automatically. This costs a lot of bandwith, time and space every hour. I would suggest to develop a second db system and let the user choose which one to take, which stores the mails in individual files in a tree-like system resembling the IMAP-folder structure. Thereby, one new mail would only add a few kB to a backup. Furthermore, this system is way more crash proof as a single database file. To keep it simple for end users, migration between the different db-options should be possible. Maybe, this featrue would even help upon spotlight integration of Thunderbird Mails... Thanks a lot, Phillip Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1.make time machine backup 2.get new mail 3.time machine backs up the entire db again Actual Results: hard disk space decreases dramatically
