One other thing that you can try to improve performance is click on:
Settings -> Configure Kmail -> Accounts -> (The Account that you are using)
-> Modify -> Advanced
Make sure that there is a check mark next to "List Only Open Folders"
Hmm - I've avoided that setting, as I didn't feel sure of what it does.
instance, I have 'Open threads that contain new, unread...... threads'. If
'List only open folders' means that only these folders are listed, copying and
moving messages would be a problem.
However, having re-started kmail, nothing looks any different. Does that
imply that we are not talking about the display, but how much reading kmail
does for every transaction?
Restart Kontact / Kmail. See if that helps.
OK. This is the first message to go out under the new setting. I'll see what
happens over the next few hours.
