IMAP timing issue

I'm not sure what to do about this, maybe I am doing something wrong..
I setup my wifes account as IMAP so she could read her email from home(Kmail) 
& work (using web mail). The problem is, at home, on our debian box, she runs 
Kmail. When she clicks on the inbox it takes forever to bring in all the 
messages, and if she clicks on another folder NOT in her inbox, next time she 
goes back, it starts over again with zero messages, retrieves them all, and 
it takes forever. Part of the problem is people that send monster ( OUTLOOK) 
messages with megabyte attachments.. 
What can I do? I'm not that familiar with IMAP, would disconnected IMAP be 
better? filtering all email larger than 1Mb to her local inbox?
other ideas?
