Dacron weight, Mail Sail

What weight dacron would be recommended for a mail sail on a 30 ft. cruising boat, Lake Ontario sailing. Looking at used sails, I have seen anywhere from 5.5 oz. to 9 oz. with 7 oz. seeming to be the most common. Is there that much of a difference in performance and life?

Thanks,

David
