I think those of us that faced this recent problem is aware of the normal loss of space due to fragmentation. What we are experiencing is unusually big losses. When I was using SimpleMail 3.3, monthly brainwipe/restores will recover about 200 to 300K on my 32 MB Card. Now, I lose up to 1 MB in about 10 days! That's unusual.

I think I'm also getting similar fragmentation When SimpleMail 4 came out I stunted reading and writing all of my e-Mali with my Newton. Right now I've got over 100 messages in my In/Out box, totalling around 300KB. Most Of this is on MY 1OMB card Which has 1780KB free. Before I replaced SimpleMail 3.3 with 4 and started downloading all this mail I had 2.3 MB free on the Card. SimpleMail 4 is on Internal.

Soon I'm going to do a backup / restore cycle on Internal and on the card. I'll let you know what my results are.
