Suggestion: Thunderbird does local compacation of the mailstor, and deletions that hit the threshold and trigger this may be slower than others. (I have a vague sense thunderbird does this; I could be wrong. Assuming the server is using Maildir I don't see why this should happen on the serverside, nor have I had that experience even with large folders (large enough that no mail client can handle them properly)). -- / Peter Schuller PGP userID: 0xE9758B7D or 'Peter Schuller <[EMAIL PROTECTED]>' Key retrieval: Send an E-Mail to [EMAIL PROTECTED] E-Mail: [EMAIL PROTECTED] Web: http://www.scode.org
