Very Large DB?

Tue May 22, 2018 7:35 pm

Hi,

I see that my mwes.db file is very large.
Its about 5 GB

How can we shrink it?

You could change the duration of how long emails are kept. Under Settings>>General>>Housekeeping, you can make those days shorter. I imagine Quarantine is keeping a lot.

Also, you could vacuum the database using the SQlite interface, or on Windows, use something like SQLite Expert Personal http://www.sqliteexpert.com/download.html and Vacuum the DB from there.
