I believe your misfortune could be at least partially caused by the  
dreaded Mail V Memory Leak (assuming you use Mail V). Take a look at

back at my notes for the precise solution, basic idea is to use two  
memory cards, configure mailv to save to card, and from time to time  
wipe the mp to recover memory. Scarry the first time but not that bad,  
a lingering annoyance.

getting this list with it). The problem is, even though I am deleting  
email after I've read it, I am running out of storage (eMate 300, not  
external storage card) as if I didn't delete them. I've checked "All  
Items" to be sure and there is nothing in my In/Out box whatsoever. I  
have SBM Utilities and have from the cleaner which reclaimed about  
47kb but prior to receiving list emails I had over 200kb free and  
haven't installed anything since. Thanks,  

I recall reading somewhere that if you save MailV to a storage card,  
occasionally back it up, format the card and restore its data...you'll  
be able to reclaim that lost space.

Can't recall where I read that, though....

That should be corrected for clarity: the backup of the storage card  
should be to a computer, not to a storage card...unless you have a  
second storage card. The point is, by saving what's on the storage  
card elsewhere, reformatting it and restoring its contents, you will  
reclaim the lost capacity.

Even if you don't use MailV it couldn't hurt to try this.

Hope that helps,
