This limit should be increased. Especially, if TB-Users are suggested to use offline reading or gloda by the migration wizard. Modern mail accounts allow 10 GBytes and more - TB should follow these current limits. Some smaller bugs relating to this: - the message about full inbox should be more specific, telling the user, which folder of which account has become too large. - folder sizes above 4 GByte are shown as a "modulo" number - for example 320 MB instead of the real size of 4.xxx MB - so it is very difficult to find out which folder has becomt too large. Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Download more than 4 GB Mails for offline reading or via POP3 2. or: Copy more than 4 GB Mails in a local folder 1st) Best Solution: Support larger mbox-files 2nd) Tell exactly, which folder of which account has become too big 3rd) Show the correct size of folder, if it has become too big - instead of the "modulo" count. I think, today this limitation of 4 GB is a major bug.
