May not be necessary

I'll admit to having never used Incredimail. I looked at the product page for it, and left very quickly after realizing it was designed in the Fisher Price style. Lots of cute animations full of bright pastels, which serve absolutely no purpose at all.

Anyway, sparing you all the boring technical details, not all email programs store messages in the same way. It's entirely possible Incredimail uses a system that doesn't use the whole compacting thing. Even on programs that do use that storage method, you save so little space by compacting, it's not really worth it. It's a feature left over from the days when hard drives were in the 20MB range, and every little bit of space counted. In the days of multi-GB drives, we can afford to be a little wasteful.

Thank you Jackson, I must say I do love Incredimail.

I also have Outlook Express where I do compact files and thought it may be necessary in Incredimail also

Thank you once again

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
