I keep getting this message when closing O/E. To free up disk space, O/E can compact messages. Question, is this good or bad. I have lots of disc space left, over 240 gigs.

What counts is the space in the OE file where mail is saved, not the total on your disk drive; compacting is quite safe, and should be done on a regular basis.
