One of the common uses of EF is storing large libraries of back mail. I use Eudora, and have accumulated roughly 100,000 messages. (If I don’t throw something away within 24 hours, I usually keep it forever.) Eudora seems to have no trouble with all this email, as long as I keep the number of messages in a folder below a few thousand.
Question: Given that Eudora does fine, is there any advantage to using EF to store mail? Is there something I’m overlooking here, or is it just that most mail programs bog down when they have too many messages?
thanks for any advice from other users
