Default "Purged Messages" Database?

Please Login to Remove!

I swear I searched before posting! This is probably a case of me poking around where I shouldn't be, but now I'm just plain curious...I was looking around the "advanced backup and restore" feature of my desktop manager last night, and noticed a "purged messages" database on my device, with roughly a zillion (give or take a few thousand, of course) records in it. (The "zillion" probably correlates to the number of emails that have gone through this puppy since I got it about a month ago, but I could totally be mistaken!)

Okay, so when I go ahead and delete messages from the handheld, they're deleted on the BWC and my device, and I do a "purge." They're not saved, they're not accessible from any of the "folders," they aren't on the BWC anymore, etc. What the heck is this database? Is it going to keep growing and gradually eat up memory? Or, is it going to clear itself when I hit my magic 15 day "auto age" number? Or, am I being paranoid and should just stop looking at databases I don't understand? (I can't help it...I'm a nerd. If I could take the darn thing apart and look at all the pieces, I would!)

Thank you for indulging a newbie's silly questions!!!!!!!
