I use logrotate on my spam inboxes, so they look to compress to
13-14MB:

-rw-------    1 nick     nick          13M Aug 22 11:15 inboxes/zztrash
-rw-------    1 nick     nick          14M Aug 22 00:15 inboxes/zztrash.1.gz
-rw-------    1 nick     nick          13M Aug 21 00:19 inboxes/zztrash.2.gz
-rw-------    1 nick     nick          14M Aug 20 00:18 inboxes/zztrash.3.gz
-rw-------    1 nick     nick         261K Aug 19 00:14 inboxes/zztrash.4.gz

Note that that initail uncompressed 13MB one is only 11 hours of spam.

Trains my bayesian filters just grand.
