I use TB 2.0.0.12 with XP pro. In the TunderBird\profiles\****default\extensions\first of the list of extensions\logfiles\ folder, I have a bunch of logfiles for each day. There are about 20 of them and everyday a new set of 20 appear accumulating a ton of them. I go in and am able to delete manually all the ones previous to current days files with no ill effect saving me a bunch of HD space.
What I would like to know is there anyway to limit the number of days it saves the logfiles for automatically? Maybe something in the options I am missing.

Do you normally compact your folders?
Try this path, as well: Tools/Options/Advanced: compact folders when it will save......
I hope this helps,
John

Thanks for the suggestions everyone. I just found where I had logging enabled in the Webmail extension.
Thanks again.
