Hmm - unfortunately on webos 1.4.5 I don't have /var/file-cache. Sounds like solutions that work for 2.0 may not be valid for 1.4.5. Caveat emptor... (FYI, I'm on an original Pre with webos 1.4.5.)

I have emails months old, despite storage settings of between 1 and 7 days per account. (And I have files in the attachments directory that are over a year old!)
I was able to get rid of a larger attachment to get below 100%, at which point I could finally open the email app again. I went to each of the large email accounts and changed the storage settings to their next lower option, and the phone is now doing its thing - its a slow process apparently, but its down to 97% full now.
Anyone have any ideas how to make this stop happening?
Anyone know beyond a doubt that its safe to delete attachments? (I could delete that one directory along and save myself a huge chunk of storage, but I'm afraid to remove files that are pointed at by the database...)
This isn't a problem a whole lot of folks seem to know about, but I'm really hoping its fixed in webos 2+...
