I don't understand why folders that appear to be empty aren't in Thunderbird

    I have Windows XP Pro, SP2.

    I use Thunderbird as an email client. When you look in the "Drafts" folder it's empty but when you go to:

    C:\Documents and Settings\(username)\Application Data\Thunderbird\Profiles\lgdt4k2y.default\Mail\Local Folders,

    you find in "Local Folders" a file called "Drafts". It's huge

    In "Local Folders" are files with names of all the folders that are default and that you've created. So I assume this is where all your messages are stored. I don't have any idea why "Drafts" is so big. Can somebody please tell me about this file?
