Is your mail retrieved using IMAP, POP or Exchange/EWS, or is it all
locally retrieved?   How much mail do you have?  Have you tried running
it from the command line with some of the debugging switches turned on
to see what it's doing in that time?

(See as referenced from
Help -> Contents)
The mail is all POP. 11 active POP mail collection accounts.
46,000 items in the inbox and 8,000 sent, 25 virtual folders.

No I haven't run it from the command line as yet, as I thought I'd check to see if it was a common problem here first.

If no one else is experiencing a similar issue, I'll try the debug route and see what's happening.

Thanks for your help
