Why? Speed
Authored by: vital on May 22, '04 04:18:05AM

I can search for a message in roughly 1/10th of the time it takes Mail.app to find it. I can switch folder full of messages (literally 1000's of them) almost instantly. I can quickly access multiple mailservers and retrieve my mail with out grinding things to a halt and then filter them all quickly.

I don't need HTML/rtf messages. Email wasn't really designed for that anyway. I deal with a large volume of email daily [100-120 message, not counting SPAM], that I need to be able to read and respond to, and I need to be able to store and search for them.

It boils down to speed for me. Different people may have different needs, but I really don't believe that Mail.app is a solution for every email need that people have.

I have a folder with 11000+ messages. Switching to that folder takes less than a second, so I wouldn't say that Mail.app is that slow. :-)
