Does anyone have experience as to whether Thunderbird (and SeaMonkey?) degrade more gracefully than did Netscape 7 when a mail folder is of choke-inducing size?
I cautioned about Compacting because of the aside in the original post. But Kiteman's last post would indicate that he is running. Not every user of the Mozilla mail products is cognizant of appropriate folders' housekeeping, and I wanted to reiterate that consideration for the benefit of anyone else that might trip across this thread.
