- With imap folders containing lots of mails, it still takes some

problem with other MUA. I thought the "faster indexer" would solve
that, but it didn't.

imap folder loading is roughly 3x times as fast as it was in 1.0.8 and
it can't get much (if any) faster. There's a certain amount of network
traffic that we *must* do, and that is what is causing the slowness
(well, most of it - etable rendering is the other).

Would it be possible to make the imap access to not operate in a
"blocking" fashion.  For example, now if I happen to select a message
for viewing while the imap "checking for mail" access is occuring, it
will not show the message contents until the imap access is complete. 
This is also true of initial folder viewing.  While it would not speed
up the imap access, it would provide a "feel" of faster response.

Just wondering....

it *is* done in another thread :-)
