I don't think that there is any difference between the old Netscape and Seamonkey. The fact remains that each person who had problem, had one or more of the following situations.
1. Did not compact folders, on a regular basis, thus keeping deleted mail in the background. I remember a friend who had only three e-mails in the Inbox, but the size of the Inbox was increasing continuously, and he had gone past 17MB. I asked him if he compacted his folders, and had never done that. His Inbox went down to about 100Kb,after compacting.
2. People who save everything can get up there in a hurry, if everything remains in the Inbox file. Take a look at this reference, as an extreme case
I said in my previous post that I don't keep everything in the Inbox, rarely getting over 10 MB.
The header (.msf file) could not handle the situation if the Inbox file exceeded 100-200 MB. Not sure at which point, but way up there.
