I’ve got 170,000+ emails in my inbox. The inbox file size is 72MB.

Any one has some experience with tons of emails in your inbox?
Yes! I need your help!

I'm already removed the inbox file.
You may know the email tweak settings to prevent this problem in the future.
You may know easier way to prevent this problem.

The reason that you have some many emails is probably due to the change of email storage, when i upgraded my all emails were set and retrived even ones i had deleted, shows they are never completed deleted.

There is your source of all the emails you have been sent.
