    Sinetempore, a user asked on Apple Discussions about exporting emails in High Sierra. I don't have a big folder to test. Can anyone verify is unlimited folder size is now limited?

    This is new to me: with High Sierra I am not able to export .mbox file larger than 2.15Gb. My Inbox is 2.9Gb, when I export it, the .mbox file size is always 2.15Gb!!! And if I import this 2.15Gb file, hundreds e-mails are missing from my original Inbox.

    Are they trying to export to an external FAT32 drive?

    Here we go again, after months and with Mojave this issue is still ON! Unbelievable!
    Anyone without this issue with Mojave?
