I have to say that I am confused because I remember you saying that the
problem was with a gmail account which should have been imap and in the
imap subdirectory and not the local subdirectory.

As indicated above, you have an INBOX like a cesspool and you don't
break it down into subdirectories which is really what you need to do
and not allow your INBOX or any subdirectory to get that big.
