Hi everybody,

I'm new to Mutt and I'm trying to get emails from my yahoo IMAP account so
I configured ~/.muttrc like this:

set folder=imaps://konrad.frede...@imap.mail.yahoo.com
set spoolfile=imaps://konrad.frede...@imap.mail.yahoo.com/INBOX
set header_cache=~/.mutt_headers

As a result I'm asked for the password when I launch `mutt`.
Then it starts downloading the email headers.. Then it fails after 5~6
minutes without having a chance of finishing to get the headers.

The end of the debug log says the following:

I tried to add the following lines in the config file but it didn't change

set imap_keepalive = 60
set imap_idle=yes
The above two parameter have nothing todo with the problem;

I've ~30K emails on this account is that the issue?
Any idea how I can fix that?
I do not think, having ~30K mails in a mailbox is a good idea at all,
and fetching down 30K headers on every mutt connect for sure is not

Yes true it's not nice.. But I though there was an header cache implemented somewhere?


If I were you, I would use fetchmail to fetch them down to a local mbox,
first with a run without deleteing them on the server and in a 2nd run
deleting them on the server.
