You can set "auto-compact" your folders by defining so under Preferences/
advanced/network and disk space. 

"Compacting" is another of the annoyances of Thunderbird but is a "must-
do" task (if you avoid doing so your mailbox files will grow, and grow 
and grow... because deleted e-mails are not really deteleted until you -
maually or automatically- hit the "compact" button). 

And that remembers me the third of the Thunderbird's annoyances: storage 
files for each folder cannot go beyong 4 GiB).
