problem in thunderbird pls help!
 
hi pls help me on this problem.... to start with, i was testing something on our mail server and i accidentally triggered some alerts to send emails on my thunderbird account on my pc and i found it out too late because i think the space on my thunderbird folders got full and when i try to erase the email messages from the alerts, i just get this error. pls help! thanks!


The messages could not be moved or copied to folder 'TRASH' because writing to folder failed. To gain disk space, from the File menu, first choose Empty Trash, and then choose Compact Folders, and then try again.

How about trying what the error message suggests?

Also, to confirm what is happening, use df and du to see how full the partition is and who is taking the space.
