I did not follow this thread closely but, FWIW, although always I keep
my Inbox empty - which makes using new mails easier, but this is just me
- I did occasionally found the content of some emails to be blank. After
first thinking it was the sender's mistake, I found that moving those
"blanks" to a different folder of my IN mail structure sometimes solved
the problem, or that shutting down SM and opening them in TB did the trick.
So I did, installed Tunderbird/Lightning, deleted *.msf from my Mail box
and rebuild the summary/index file. And guess what happened; the same
error still occured. Incoming new mail content displayed blanc before
manual rebuilding the index file.

If Thunderbird really has a 4GB Inbox limit, this looks to be a bug?
I have no explanation for this, it seems to happen, very seldom,
randomly. My opinion is, it has nothing to do with the size of the Inbox
(although I strongly agree with what others said about keeping it of a
reasonable size, if only to minimize risks) or of the email, but with
the way the email is displayed. There are probably multiple possible
causes to this and I am there clearly out of my depth.
