If I click <file>
then click <compact folders>
does this compact all folders in the profile, both for the account and local?

This is part of an effort to avoid having "ghost messages"

When I
-- open TB
-- click <file> <compact folders>
-- highlight the account
-- click <file> <compact folders>
I receive a notice on the bottom left of the screen that says so many megabytes

If it then
-- highlight LOCAL FOLDERS
-- click <file> <compact folders>
I receive a notice on the bottom left of the screen that says so many megabytes

It seems that I have to highlight and compact the account and the local folders separately.
Do others have this
