If you really want to live on the bleeding edge then please try some of
the patches which have been posted, but won't be merged anytime soon due
to political reasons.

For example, I posted a patch which speeds up the display of the "Unread
Mail" folder by _several orders of magnitude_, but it won't be merged
anytime soon because it disables hiding of junk messages (which IMHO was
so inefficiently implemented that it should never have been allowed in,
but now that we have the "feature" we can't just rip it out, even for a
100x speedup in displaying the message list).  See the "Performance with
Exchange 2003" thread, among others.

I get the impression that none of the Evolution developers have even
tried my patch, no one around here seems to care about performance.  If
I could get one other user to confirm the massive speedup, maybe someone
would notice.
