Hmmmm ... but even if you have "Skip messages over ___K" set in Eudora, once that message ages past the days set in the "Leave Mail on Server for X days" box, wouldn't it be deleted anyway?

A lot of users have the option set to "Skip messages over ___K" (Eudora).  When they receive large attachments they can click a button to download it, or click another button to delete it from the server.  Problem is, they often do neither because they don't remember, don't know, or don't care.   So the large message is just orphaned there in their mailbox on your server.  Over time their mailbox grows and grows.

The only solution is to either empty out the box, or to look at it and selectively delete the large old files with a utility like Mail Siphon.
