Yes--you may see some messages in the status bar, if you've enabled them. That "freeze" is the reason for the "Check INBOX only" option!

But while it doesn't "freeze" long if it only checks inbox, the user loses the valuable indication that new mail is available in some other folder.

I have on occasion wondered (but never investigated) how much work it would be to have the mail checking (and fetching?) be done by a separate thread, so that the GUI would never have to "freeze"...
