A well-known bug. When too many messages are in the queue the filesize gets too big and the game gets slow, unstable, then unusable. I believe you've already got a fix that.

May the unholy fires of corbomite ignite deep within the depths of your soul...

Yes, this one is fixed. Data storage is not at a premium like it was when the original mail system was created, so optimizing for size is not a major concern. The new system creates each player's mail file in a seperate file, greatly simplifying the process of handling mail transactions, and also creating a wall between players so that a crash on one file would not effect the others. I don't anticipate a corruption even on one file, because the cause of corruption is no longer part of the system.
