    If click on email header in the list it takes 8 sec (yes, it's very long) to open plain simple email without any attachments. it writes: "Formatting Message..". Same delay if press Reply button.

    v2.26.2, Win XP SP2
    IMAP account in corporate network.

    Thunderbird installed on the same PC displays messages from the SAME account with virtually no delay - 0.5 sec.

    This is major usability showstopper.

    Similar report is posted by 'JP Moore' user on v2.26.1 here:

      well, may it was my local problem.
      I noticed literally dozen of evolution-data-server processes in Windows'sTask Manager. When I closed Evolution and killed all evolution* processes and restart the application, it opens emails pretty fast.
