I have found a huge bottleneck in the folder listing. It was checking all
folders for unseen messages and notifying how many unseen messages there are
in that folder.
This is fine for 5-10 folders, but at Taylor, we have some heavy email users
who have 30-50 folders. This takes a long time because it has to ask the
imap server for each mailbox. In 0.4pre1, i am limiting it to only checking
for new messages in the INBOX. In pre2 I hope to add a small feature that
lets you chose between 3 or 4 methods of displaying the folder listing that
can be tailored to individual users. Do you think that is ok for pre2, or
should I hold off for .5?
