Help! Everytime I view my inbox contents, I get a blank email dated 12/31/1969 6:00pm. It usually copies the to/from from other emails in my inbox. I can delete it, and empty trash and when I view inbox again - a similar one appears. I have run NAV and it shows my system is clean, but I worry what other affects (besides being irritating) this may have on my system.
When you delete a message in Netscape, or Mozilla, it's not physically removed from the mail file, but only hidden from display. This wastes valuable hard disk space. To reclaim that HD space for the current account, you need to compact folders in Netscape, or Mozilla.
Everyone should compact their Mail folders periodically.
