Because this again is how IMAP works--you're meant to read the message off the server, and it's downloaded on demand. If you had to pre-fetch all the messages, this could take a very long time, especially if you were looking at an extremely large mailbox for the first time, and it contained very large messages. With typically short messages on fast networks, you usually should not notice much delay, and with larger messages you only incur the wait time when you actually want to look at the message. If you have a high latency connection, it may be worth pre-syncing and reading locally. If you want to pre-sync your mailbox and read it locally, that would be why you would use fetchmail, mbsync, etc.. Mutt doesn't need to do that for you since there are already plenty of things that do. -- Derek D.
