Thank you for your answer.
Well, I found where is my problem :

My mail storage folder is a subdirectory of the local folder (which is 
copied to the linux workstation). As I am subscribed in a lot of mailing 
lists, this folder is updated very quickly.
If I do a copy of the local folder to the Linux workstation, the local 
folder and the remote folder are not very long the same and the local 
folder is always greater than the remote folder. The difference in the 
'Size' property comes always from the mail storage folder. All other 
folders have the same size.....

It was so easy  :)
