Sent file still very big

Hi folks!
Hope you can help me. Because I don't know why my sent file in Thunderbird Portable is still big. It is about 150 MB, but in my Sent-Folder are only ten
files. Their maximum size should be 6 MB, or something around that.
I had sent some files with a big attachment, but I have deleted them all.
Do you know why the file is still big?

Compact Folders

As has been discussed previously, Thunderbird keeps messages in folder after they are deleted until you compact a folder. Just right-click on it and select compact.

It is recommended you set TB to do this automatically:

Sometimes, the impossible can become possible, if you're awesome!
