Hmm i count 168,563 messages and 5GB of attachments (all real emails, none spam) I don't consider that big... some of my colleagues have over 250,000!. I think the fact that squirrelmail uses IMAP and doesn't cache the mail is the reason why it's slow. I guess it's got a lot of processing to do all the time... If you use POP3 there's less processing involved (correct me if I'm wrong) so why not use evolution or something? Put all your mails into different mailboxes (ie categorised) should use up less processing power on ya.
