A possible fix for a slow Mail.app
Authored by: swilcox on Feb 06, '06 01:47:32PM

Tried this. I too use mostly IMAP accounts. I notice no difference in speed. The old Envelope index was ~12.5 MB. The new one is 10.5 MB, no appreciable disk savings either.

A possible fix for a slow Mail.app
Authored by: dturley on Feb 06, '06 02:38:57PM

I have a mix of IMAP and POP. My Envelope file was 45M. After importing 93,996 messages, it was reduced just a bit to 38M. But opening mailboxes seems significantly quicker. Searches are faster too. It was previously taking several minutes to search the subjects of a mailbox with less than 50 messages. This is now very much improved. I'd tried rebuilding the mailboxes without improvement.
