My Mail.app program is ridiculously slow. I have several email accounts and I just checked the size of my Mail folder (
That's huge...no wonder it's so slow. So the question is, how do I minimize the size? I refer back to old emails all the time, so I am reluctant to just purge my email folder. I have thousands of emails.
Is there an easy way to make this smaller and will that help with the speed of this program?
I have a MacBook Pro 2.5G GHz Intel Core 2 Duo with 4 GB 667 Mhz DDR2 SDRAM. I am running Lion 10.7.2.
