Some time ago I noticed my Netscape Gold also doesn't really delete
Email even if you empty the "Trash" folder. And, the Inbox file also
just gets larger and larger. Well, I have a simple fix for this. The
trick is to ensure that the "Mozilla" entry goes away too (just deleting
the files reinstates the Mozilla, which gets old after a while). If
anyone wants the details I will post the .BAT files here. (Sorry, I use
DOS and Win 3.1 here...)
