I am running over 8GB and have all my mails since 1998 and never lost
anything on Linux.
Here is the output of my $ du -H
Before that, using NT and Win95/98 I lost mails about once every 6
months due to Windows going corrupt dumping check files all over the drive.
Although there is a horde of irritating non-working things in
Mozilla/Seamonkey, the entire Netscape/Mozilla/Seamonkey migration path
I followed never sacrificed my mail and that is worth gold compared to
the bugs and irritations.
Outlook users I know, regularly lose their mail, approximately every 2
years or shorter.

Um, please bottom post or intersperse in these newsgroups (or mailing
lists), thank you for your consideration in this regard
And the object/intent of my message was NOT discussing how many email
you can store safely in Thunderbird, but how many you can download at
You may have 8gb of mail built up since 1998, but you don't download
them all at one time, and the question of the OP was why the count went
backwards when you did.
Your comment is superfleous
