Re: [Evolution] slow mail downloads

yes, it makes a big difference. If your POP server supports the UIDL
extension, we are able to use those ids rather than generating our own
by fetching the headers of each message and md5summing them.

we need unique ids so that we can avoid re-downloading messages.

Or you have junk filtering turned on?

Junk filtering with non-local tests on?  That is a main cause of this
slow down.

I did have junk filtering turned on, but for local tests only. Having
turned it off seems to be only marginally faster. Also, I've noticed
that if I only have two messages to download, they download at normal
speed. If I have 150 messages to download it's painfully slow. But it's
not the amount of messages, as I don't see the same problem under the
same circumstances in other mail clients.
