Just leave the details up to Thunderbird.

That was also my instinct, but I'm not sure if TB is going to tidy up
that space. On my laptop, I have 16Gb taken up by TB mailbox files -
I stopped the sync 2 days ago, nothing's been tidied up. One account
I set to "keep 1 week" for the inbox, but the INBOX file sofar
remains at 120Mb.

In my experience, when Thunderbird does a compact operation, it does
save space.

When there is something to save, i.e. deleted files, yes. I did the
compact on a few folders after I switched off the sync, nothing
happened. I presume because no mails were deleted.

If you click "advanced" you see which folders are stored locally, but
none is marked for this account.

Right, same here, non are marked.

To save space, I don't think there is any way around manually removing
the mailbox files. I tried it with a single subfolder - closed TB,
moved the mailbox file, left the index, started TB, asked to repair the
index. The email contents are intact.

There is an old bug report on this:

I didn't read all of it, but the most recent update is only a month old.
