Save space after Mail upgrade
Authored by: PeaceFreak on Aug 06, '12 04:48:31PM

I just checked the size of both folders and they do not match. The original prior to Mountain Lion size is 168 MB, the Mountain Lion one is only 14.3 MB. Perhaps I deleted some mail attachments from Mail at some time in the past but the data was kept... I don't have time to compare the contents and see if that is so, but before deleting anything I would advise to check the content.

It's possible that it only moved/copied those files that are still attached to messages in your mailboxes. The previous folder would keep attachments if you viewed them in Mail, even after you deleted the messages.

Now, that would make sense... It makes one more folder (with the "Unsupported applications" folder at root) to clean-up on ML...
