Thunderbird has a max size per folder: Errors saying cannot copy to sent folder today

Aug 16th, 2013 | By | Category: Technology

So it appears that if you are like me and save 100% of your emails that thunderbird will eventually shit a brick and tell you enough is enouhg.. From what I’ve read that limit is 4GB per folder, or in my case 14236 emails in the sent folder.  A fine example of why it might be better to go with gmail or a cloud based solution that won’t impose these limits.  Anyways best thing to do is right click on the folder, export it as a zip and then just empty it.
