I have a similar situation with the "Drafts" file -- over 1 GB, but
there's nothing in it....
the *.msf files are just index files. They tell the program which way
messages are sorted, which ones are flagged, labelled, etc.
The files which the extension such as inbox, drafts, etc, are the ones
that contain your messages. You can open those files using any text
editor. But if its that large, then it might take a long time opening.
I forgot to add: when you delete messages, the message
is deleted from the folder, but it still remains in the
file. This is incase you want the messages back, there
is a way to retrieve them. However, once in a while,
you need to clean up your files, and get rid of those
left over messages, and the way to do that is to
compact your folders [under File].
