[Evolution] Evolution slow to send new message

This is from a standard Mandrake 9.2 installation:

# hdparm -c -d /dev/hda

 IO_support   =  1 (32-bit)
 using_dma    =  1 (on)

perhaps your drive isn't in 32bit mode w/ DMA

hdparm -c -d /dev/<drive>

what does that say? you might need to rebuild your kernel with support
for these if you don't already.

This is another period of time when Evolution freezes for a few seconds,
which is annoying if I'm trying to do something like delete the message
or drag it to a local folder.   By contrast, when the status bar says
"retrieving messages..." (or is it "fetching messages...") this does not
block other activity.

connecting to the smtp server and sending the message? the "Saving
message to folder" mesg is probably when it is moving the message from
Outbox to Sent.

I'm using Evolution 1.4.4 on Mandrake 9.2 on a fairly fast system, yet
when I type a plain-text message, it takes about 7 seconds from the time
I click the Send button until it appears in my Outbox (The word Outbox
goes bold and a (1) appears next to it).  During this time, the status
bar at the bottom of the window says something like "Saving message to
folder...".  After that it leaves my outbox quickly.

All my folders, settings, home directory, etc. are on fast local disk, I
have 512 MB RAM, etc.  Spellcheck is disabled.  It always behaves like
this when I send messages, and it happens even if I have only 1 or 2
addresses in the "To:" list.

Is this to be expected, or is there something wrong?
What's it doing that takes so long?
