Re: [Evolution] Ctrl-ADX

My home dir is directly mounted (normal ext2), my computer is a RH6.2
laptop (pII 300), my disk is a bit slow perhaps, but erasing all mails is
wayy too slow.
The 'mh' format is really better - erasing is now very fast. I'll switch to
maildir, thanks for the advice.

Well if you're deleting all mails it should be very fast, even for mbox.
It basically just doesn't copy anything into a new mbox and links over

And if you say have a total of 1000 messages and delete a number of
them, it should be taking seconds, and not minutes to expunge, so well,
i dont really know.  Unless you have very slow disk or something.

Is your home dir on NFS or something like that, etc?

Yes, sorry ...

I don't know exactely how long it is, because I usually let Evo work
and do other things. But around 10mn, on a pII 300 (laptop, armada

I'll try again when I have 1000 mails

How many emails?

What is the folder format, and where is it stored?

Are they imap folders?


Please provide some useful information.

Hi !

Sometimes (each other day), I use Ctrl-A Ctrl-D Ctrl-X to purge the
where my mailing-lists are filtered. With some hundreds mails, it
forever to complete. I think the purge is not intelligent enough.
