Issue with email queue and database size?

We found database size is increased with increase in email send.
Currently we send 100+ ( less than 500) email with image and pdf attachment. The database size is showing 1.2GB

Is this normal?

I think email queue doctype stores attached files as base64 encoded data into database.

I got one client server to retest this issue.

Database size is 3GB.
If I delete email queue then database size is 207 MB

Is this fine if I delete Email Queue?


@kolate_sambhaji. Did you delete these Email Queue records?

Is this API, frappe.delete_doc() sufficiently deletes the records?
