I have been running the latest releases of SeaMonkey (now 1.1.16) on
what should be a rather hot system -- a Core 2 quad 3.0 GHz system
running Vista Business 64-bit in 8 GB RAM.. SeaMonkey mail performance,
especially anything moving messages between folders, is really slow
(like several seconds to move a message). I've compressed folders and
rebuilt indexes and no improvement. I'm using F-PROT anti-virus. CPU
usage according to Task Manager is in the single-digit percentage range.
I run SeaMonkey at home with larger folders on a much older system with
better performance -- but it is Windows XP and different anti-virus.
The system disk is defragmented frequently.
What else do I check?
Long shot, but try turning your anti-virus OFF completely and then
moving messages... any improvement?
Such a test can indicate if it is anti-virus program releated or not.
You can disconnect from the internet when you make the test if you have
a mind to although its not really neccessary.
