Eh?? Sdbox is like mbox - one file per mailbox/folder... it is NOT like
maildir (one email = one file).

The diff between mdbox and sdbox is sdbox puts all messages for any
given mailbox/folder in one sdbox file (just like mbox). Sdbox has a
setting for the max filesize of the dbox file, and once an mdbox file
exceeds that size, it creates a new mdbox file to start adding messages to.
