FWIW, I have over 10,000 emails in my Evo folder (Dovecot IMAP on my

two seconds. Evo start-up, which needs to happen rarely, takes a bit
longer, but otherwise, performance is fine for me.

10,000 is not that much, extrapolate your results to 100,000+ messages
and you start to have some problems.

To be clear, local folders seem to scale to 100K+ messages just fine.
It's the vfolder implementation that seems to get into trouble.

Anyway, I really need to profile it, and try Not Zed's latest
performance fixes, before speculating any more.  For all I know the
problem is fixed in CVS.
