Known bug: Mail V consumes storage and doesn't return it, every time
you check a POP3 account. About 2K every time you check the account.

Although, it may be too late. You should consider a backup and restore
of your internal storage to recover the lost storage space.

Now the solution... make sure you have *really* set up Mail V to store
to an external card. FIRST: Open Card Preferences from your Extras app.
Your external card should have the option checked "Save new info and
packages on this card." This is the option that effects the default
storage location for everything. This is the one you've probably

Next, go to your In/Out Box app. Select Preferences from "i" menu. The
option here (Always store new items internally" should be unchecked.

That should fix where Mail V is storing.

You can go the In/Out Box app and select all messages. Then "File" them
to the external store. This will help free up *real* message storage
consumed. BUT, this will not return the 2K per login you have lost
since using Mail V.
