    The size of my Mail & Calendar app is 1 GB. Is that really taking that much space ? I have deleted most if not all my emails. Any comments ?

    Device: Lumia 1520.2
    W10M Build 10586.36

    Thanks!

    It's about 70mb on my device and I have lot of mails. Did you checked All mail folder in Gmail. All mails stays in that folder even if you delete them from Inbox.

    Thanks. I checked and deleted all mails in the "deleted" folder in all mailboxes and the size did not change.

    The store says that the size of the app is approx. 127MB, which means that I must have about 800 MB worth of data. I can't seem to find them.

    I can't uninstall/reinstall the app to start from scratch.

    Any comments/suggestions ?
    Thanks!

    I am pretty sure that depends on which folders of your mail account are synced and if the mails have big attachments.
    I just checked out my Mail + Calendar: 88,3 MB

    Oh, I just saw that on build .63 there is an extra entry for mails!
    That means that the app is 88,3 MB, an mails are listed separately...

    Did you find a fix for this? It is happening on my wife's phone. I deleted the mail account and re-added again, but it is still over 1GB. Ridiculous when the supposedly size should be ~150 MB.

    And yes, I am referring to the app itself, not to the Emails and Messages section, but if you go to Apps, sort by app size, Mail + Calendar is 1GB :(

    Anybody? For me the issue causes that I can't install any more update because the mail&calendar app fills the internal space and I can't even move it to the SD card :'(

    Yes, doesn't free up any storage. I even tried a storage cleaner app. All it does is remove temp files. But the Mail &Calendar app still shows >1GB. The strange thing is that mails and calendar entries have their own category now, so it can't be that. I tried to reduce sync to last 3 days, but the only thing that got smaller was the space taken by mails, not the space taken by the app... :'( seems to be some kind of bad cache management or something?

    Sure is a caching iussue, or previous backups. I fear only fix is an hard reset with backup, so it will reinstall o.s. and all core apps by zero, freeing device space

    Have that too. Mail&Calendar is 1.17GB, emails 20MB. Ridiculous. Requiring a hard reset to fix it is unacceptable!

    perhaps the anniversary update can clear that -but if it doesn't, then a factory reset is needed. There might have been an update in the past that screwed things up for the mail app and storage just started ballooning

    Has anyone been able to find a solution to this issue without having to resort to a hard reset?

    My phone stats:
    - Lumia 640 XL
    - Currently running OS build 10.0.10586.545 and trying to install update 10.0.14393.67
    - The Phone Update screen says I would need to free up 1.15 GB of space, which is roughly equal to the size of the Mail & Calendar app when I look at the Storage app screen.

    Thanks in advance

    I had the same issue and since I wanted the anniversary update, I was desperate. I found a solution now, which is time consuming but works. In short, the steps I did were:

    Backup --> Factory Reset --> Choose NO when asked to restore --> Windows Update --> Factory Reset --> Choose YES when asked to restore.

    Then almost all apps and settings came back fine. Like a miracle, Mail&Calendar app takes now below 100MB instead of the >1GB it took before and mails and calendar data take now 50MB instead of 400MB, which also.sounds more realistic. It seems that the app grows and grows without ever shrinking back. Since the backup does not backup the app as such but only the settings and the data, there is no loss. I just wish the garbage collector of Microsoft would work better, because this workaround cost me more than 4h in total. Another good tip would be to eventually use the SD for Windows updates and for mail and calendar data...

    I have had the exact same issue because all I wanted to do was install the build 14951 then from everything I noticed I should be removing was the emails, then I came across with that app that had over 600 MB, i removed my both accounts Hotmail and Gmail... That didn't do it.

    Then I read somewhere about this nice app, storage cleaner, it is a bit confusing but in the end it freed up some space on the internal storage and that my friends, that did that trick.
