my hdd was near full:92%

so I looked weeks - why ...


now:
icedove

inbox
sent
trash

if you empty each message manual/by hand: it is empty.

But: hdd still full: 92%

BUT: if you right-click on "trash" :
you get "empty trash"
you will be asked: on "empty trash"
"Are you sure you want to permanently delete all messages...bla bla"

and click: OK

so my 3-mail-accounts are now trash-empty:

! 85% hdd space available !

whow ! trash since 2 or 3 years ... crazy.

Don't forget to compact the trash (right click on trash - compact)

For me compacting the Inbox is usually the big one.
