Are there any? Maybe a 32bit limit for number of mails per folder and
such? But then, can your filesystem handle these numbers?

That's not much.
> Now, this same outlook client consists of the following :
> 1. about thirty (30) folders ranging from 1000 messages per
> folder to 100 messages per folder
> 2. A "Sent Items" folder with about 4,000 messages (and counting)
> 3. A "Deleted Items" folder with about 5,500 messages (and counting)
No problem. Although she should clean up some day.
