Hi :-) not quite true though. It would really loose performance if it would not use index files :-) I should know - my inbox is of some 90 MB now :-). NS index files are called .snm or .smn? Don't know right now. What is also strange is method of message removal. Once you delete it, it is physically only copied to Trash folder, while it still remains part of e.g. inbox folder. - So deleting msgs just eats you even more free hd space, unless you pack mailbox ... -pekr-
