I have a large mail map of 3.9GB whereof the Inbox is 2.3GB, located on

The problem is that the index file no longer does update automatic.
Trying to view new incoming messages, shows the text content of some
legacy old messages.

Selecting Inbox > Properties > Rebuild index does fix the index problem
temporary, until new messages are received.

Suggestions how to fix this index problem?

close the program and delete the *.msf file for that account. Restart
SM, then click on that folder, it should rebuild now.

You might want to move some of messages out of that folder and separate
that into some smaller folders.

I've tried that once before, but gave it a try again. As this is a
common SM mail box I use to access from dual boot Linux and Windows
systems and used over the generation with Netscape, Mozilla and now SM
email clients, I removed every *.msf file found on the system.

And yes, the index files rebuilds after SM startup. But when I send
myself a new test mail and receive it in the Inbox, the body content of
this message becomes blanc, before I rebuild the index file manually as
first mentioned.

I have no idea why not the index file updates itself automatically, or
may this be another issue?


when you delete the .msf files, you must do so with the program closed. And yes, when you restart SM, the files will be rebuilt. However, I have found that I need to click on each and every folder for the index to be rebuilt officially.

*IMPORTANT*: Sorry folks, but I cannot provide email help!!!! Emails to me may become public
