Thanks for the reply. Just a couple follow-up questions:
1) Can the contents of tempfolder be removed to free up enough space to
try again? tempfolder is currently 14GB and 104,034 messages which is
over double the amount of what is stored on the server, so duplicates
are building up in tempfolder from the failed attempts and creating its
own disk space issue.
2) I understand that Claws needs space to write to the temporary
directory, but why would the disk filling up cause it to start from the
beginning downloading all 50k messages again instead of only the few
that hadn't already been downloaded?
