From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.0; en-US; rv:0.9) Gecko/20010505 BuildID: 2001050515 I check both 'inbox' and 'sent' data files to notice numerous email I have moved or delete are still intact. Reproducible: Always Actual Results: They keep growing in size. Expected Results: Considering I have been moving and delete messages from those accounts those files should be zero, not a meg. This is a large security risk to have a complete archive of *intact* messages and all it requires is a text editor to read. It only seems to be the inbox and the sent files which grow, the others do not retain messages.
you have to compact the folder to reclaim the storage space used for deleted messages. If you have not done this, this bug is invalid.

No I did not compact the folders, so that is what that is for. Then how about an automatic compacting on install option in the server preferences? Marked by default.
there will be such a setting in mozilla 1.0, though I don't know if it will be marked by default.
