I received the following from a friend and initially took it at face value, then I thought about it:
"No wonder my laptop was choking, I had over 6,000 emails going back to 2012 !!! I didn't realise how many were building up in the SENT box, the DELETEd box looks after itself, cleans itself out every 30 days or so, but I didn't think about how MANY emails and attending files were stacking up."
I recall when using Windows Live, copies of Hotmail emails would be stored in the Users folder but my friend uses Gmail. Am I right thinking Gmail items are kept only in Google storage, or is there actually a copy retained in Linux? If so, can the Linux copy be deleted and the Google copy retained?
