Suggestion Re: Balsa crash causes old mail to reappear

how about "commit automatically every X minutes"
for people like me, who leave balsa on in the background all day (and 
would rather not have the boxes automatically close after X minutes).

also, when deleting a mail, would it be wise/possible to have balsa 
return control to the user immediately after (for example) deleting a 
message? some of my mailboxes are huge and it takes quite a while after 
pressing D for balsa to "stop thinking".

i think it was eudora where i saw there was a "task window" at the 
bottom of the screen where all activity was listed, but control of the 
app was never "paused" while a task was going on. it would just report 
success or failure in the task window. i like that.

You can also use Settings->preferences->Misc to auto-close unused 
mailboxes, which includes committing changes.
