You only have to know where to look :-)

They are in the hidden directory ".thunderbird/".

that is the point, they are not!
when i deleted about 17.000+ mails, there was nothing, but the space was
still occupied, even after rebooting, as someone kindly suggested.
If you would have read all the posts, you would have known that i
discribed the path, given by filelight, where these mail would reside,
but there was nothing!
This was such an inburst on my property, that i decided to delete the
whole directory....
Then i got my space back....over 2,5 GB returned to owner...

I am going to set up an imap server at home...
i just happened to change my old printserver, a asus tualatin
terminator, with a 1Gh celeron, and only 512 ram, with an IBM, newer,
and with 1.8Gh, 1024 Ram, wireless, in another room.
This on i am going to use...
I found myself a nice tutorial:

The idea of having *all mail ever* at one point, accessible from all
over the world, without cluttering space all over my machines speaks
very loudly to me... ;-)
