Thank you!

It is a quite good suggestion! I'm going to dig into

I've tried it but it failed quickly with a "Out of memory (at
rfc822.c:439, -1538 bytes)" whereas it was only using around 200 MB of
memory (I have 3 GB RAM + 8 GB swap available...). I do not have time to
investigate right now but I will try in 2 weeks.

It sounds like a 32-bit bug or limitation on the tool...

BTW, 30 GB is not a lot, it is only 2.28 € at 0.076 €/GB now in
France. :-) It is far less than the cost of all the people that kindly
reply to my answer and the time I'm spending on this issue... :-)
