I get that this is some sort of FAQ.
I have several folders that are very large with lots of old sent emails. I have deleted files in them WITHOUT DOING THE COMPACTING (only learned of this recently). Now as far as TB knows the entire FOLDER is empty - it still reads as 469MB (yes, it's big).
I have deleted the msf file and let TB rebuild it and still no go.
I tried to use AID4MAIL which got most of the way through it and found some sort of email delimeter missing - so I am getting the feeling that the file is really SNAFU'd
Do I need to go in and textedit this puppy
AARGH I hate TB. I spent a week importing these from old PC-PINE when this never happened
