How to compact all IMAP folders

User Help for Seamonkey and Mozilla Suite

Post Posted November 25th, 2003, 8:19 am

How can I compact all my IMAP folders and sub-folders without going into each folder and compacting it? Doing this on a couple of hundred folders and sub-folders is no joke as a regular housekeeping exercise!

The 'File > Compact Folders' behaves in exactly the same way as the 'Compact This Folder' option on the current folder's context menu.

Also, is there any way I can check what is happening using Mozilla? Currently I use Outlook to see if there are 'deleted' messages in a folder.

I'm using Mozilla suite 1.5.
