You don't think most people just let email accumulate in their inbox?
I think multi-gigabyte mailstores are now the norm.
Unfortunately not many programs (still) handle single files going over
2GiB. Particularly mbox files -- one notable failure is thunderbird,
which will regularly crash 1.2GiB.
You may want to keep that in mind when testing.
