I wrote an article concerning this, referring to SeaMonkey's ancestor,
Netscape 7. I think it applies here as well:
Basically, do not use Inbox as a long term repository for stored email.
If you need to keep email, store it in archive folders.

I would have to disagree with you on that Lee. That might have been a
problem in the old Netscape days, but its not now. I've had stuff in my
inbox for years, and never had a problem. Then again, my inbox isn't
over 2 gigs big either. But I do have other folders that are about that
big and still don't have problems.

But Grant, if they are in other folders, they are not in Inbox, are they? I don't think it matters how long items have been there, its the size and the constant access that does it.

but I'm saying I have many messages within the inbox that have been there for years, and I've never experienced any problems.

Since the OP found that the problem did not occur with a clean Inbox, but reoccurred with the old Inbox restored, is that not instructive?

I think the OPs problem is he reached the size limit for an SM folder which is 2 gigs!:

While in TB its 4 gigs:

Talk about discrimination! ;-)

I use Win2k and openSUSE 11.1/SLED Linux. In general I think it would have been useful to get 4GB file size limit of Inbox in SM also (as in TB and as on FAT32).

Is there a howto or suggestion about how to "aplit" the Inbox or move parts to archieve folders? And can filter and search functions work with Archieve and Inbox folders concurrently?

Though I previous year had to move our office SM Inboxes on Win2kTS through some smaller parts using IMAP to GW on our OES2/Linux, it was a lot more work when the Inbox was splitted in subfolders.
