I like the new features of icedove 2 (thunderbird), but when I'm
56k modem, I noticed that it uses a lot of bandwidth (especially upon
the first get messages of the day); I'm using only IMAP.
I think this is due to the fact that it builds a summary (the one shown
in the right bottom corner of the screen) of the new arrived emails by
inspecting all the IMAP folders.
Is there a way to disable this feature? I couldn't find it in the
thanks in advance
with IMAP I only fetch message headers only (and actually I didn't
find that option in the preferences); I think the problem still
persists also when downloading message headers only: thunderbird seems
to inspect all the folders for new message headers to show the
summary... I'd like to get rid of that summary...
Right-click on each folder and choose Properties. Make sure that the
"Check this folder for new messages" box is un-checked.
Other than that, I think you'll have to suffer. Or revert to Tbird 1.5.
I've just checked: all my folders have that box unchecked, so the
problem is not there :-(
