One reason I've found, is that mailboxes appears to require an occasional click to update its content. It's frustrating, but often I have found that one of my mailboxes has received mail, but doesn't alert me to this fact. I've 'watched' my mailbox drawer all day, only to find that I've received a msg but did not make the box 'bold'. I've got "Check for new mail:" set to "Every minute" but that only seems to help for the InBox. I've got rules which places mail in sub-folders, and those don't update unless I click...). I also have "[x] Automatically synchronize changed mailboxes" checked.

I switched to Thunderbird (only to switch back), because I want the interaction with iApps (namely Address Book) more than I want an updated mailbox list. I think Thunderbird is quicker, though...

This hint would help to an extent, but I don't want to have to re-export/import every time I add a contact.

In any case, keeps getting better, so I like taking advantage of the improvements...
