Re: [Evolution] Really super terribly awful slow performance "Generating message list"

Hi :)
Does Evolution depend on Java for any of the process?

In LibreOffice we found that any version of java more recent than their _22 slows the whole package down horribly.  The _22 and _20 versions improve performance dramatically (faster and more stable) and the _21 is even faster.  OpenJdk seems about the same as the _22.  Of course OpenJdk and mainstream java is now owned by Oracle.

Luckily LibreOffice is able to contain a separate version of Java/OpenJdk so that people's web-browsers and stuff keep using the more recent versions. 

I don't know if Evo uses java but the slow-down sounds familiar.

Tom :)

Try setting it to "All messages" and see if it improves.  It may not be
what you ultimately want, but at least it will narrow down where the
problem is being introduced so that if necessary the developers can
address the issue.
