    A 2Gb mail database isn't necessarily healthier than a 32Gb database. It might be slightly faster, easier to back up and better to handle, less prone to errors, but that's about it.

    Personally, I have a different approach. My live mail database contains mails of the last 2 or 3 months. I have an archive mail database that contains the rest. The live one is about 1Gb, the archive some 6 or 7 Gb. The archiving is automatically done by the server, it's just standard Notes archiving.

    I'd say that for practical every day use a mail database shouldn't grow over 2 to 4Gb.
