I am a long-time Balsa user, running Debian 'unstable' on a i386 system
(1.7 GHz Celeron). I just upgraded to Balsa 2.3.0.
Before configuring Balsa, I created a 'maildir' structure for each of
the default mailboxes, e.g.,
I took this approach -- that of creating the maildirs before
configuring Balsa -- after several unsuccessful attempts at converting
from the default 'mailbox' structure to 'maildir' after configuring
Balsa. (It would be very nice to be able to select 'maildir' during
the initial configuration!)
In the PREFERENCES -> MAIL SERVERS -> OUTGOING MAIL, I set 'Remote SMTP
Server' to 'localhost:25'.
In PREFERENCES -> MAIL OPTIONS -> OUTGOING, I selected 'Send button
always queues outgoing mail in Outbox.'
I am using 'getmail' to fetch messages from two POP3 servers and
deposit them in ~/mail/inbox.
But now messages sometimes 'hang' forever in Outbox, some are sent
immediately, and some are sent after a delay of a few minutes. Is this
behaviour caused by my use of the 'maildir' structure?
I also notice that routine operations such as moving from one message
to the next in Inbox (with preview pane open) has become painfully slow
and jumpy. Is this a result of using the 'maildir' structure? Or is
Balsa getting slower as features are added? I increased the RAM
complement from 256 Mbyte to 512 Mbyte, but Balsa still is slow and
