After deleting all mail from the Inbox, then clicking to empty trash and clicking to compact folders, my Inbox file in the mail directory still is 2+ megs in size. Sometimes, when I start up, all the previously deleted messages reappear in the inbox. When I delete them at this point, the Inbox sometimes get cleared to roughly 0 bytes in size. I have a copy of my Inbox file for those who what to debug this problem and need to see why Mozilla is working this way. I use Mozilla .81 for NT 4.0 sp6a.
please upgrade to a newer version, or indicate what daily build version you are using - this was fixed a while ago, I believe.
