Re: Some mail on server will not download to client

I should have looked harder. I had almost 300MB in a "Cache" folder within my .thunderbird dir but the OfflineCache folder was empty as I had the feature properly disabled. I just looked in the configuration editor and found browser.cache.disk.enable which I set to false and now I no longer have that waste of 300MB of disk space

Note that I consider it a waste because my IMAP server is the same computer that serves the NFS where my home directory is stored. Therefore the cache was just as remote as the email. In fact they are on the same physical storage device (a software RAID1 volume).
