A possible fix for a slow Mail.app
Authored by: kholburn on Feb 06, '06 05:26:41PM

I had a look hmmm... my envelope Index file was 66Meg, OK I'll try it.

I have an IMAP account. I quit Mail, move the Envelope Index file to my Desktop, start Mail. Mail says I'll have to rebuild the index for 150000 emails this will take 1 hour and 33 minutes. Phew, luckily it didn't quite take that long.

Then when it finally opens Mail has forgotten which folders are Junk, Trash, Sent and Drafts. I tell it.

Some of my messages have the mailbox "***orphanned mailbox***. That's different.

Mail goes into a loop and has to be killed.

New Envelope Index is now 60MB not much of an improvement really.
