I don't think this was a thread hijack attempt at all.
You're parroting things I said on Twitter about Eudora's source code
release and what it might mean for Thunderbird or some of their users.
I run Thunderbird on a 2016 MacBoook Pro (Sierra
10.12.6, 2.6GHz i7,
16GB RAM, internal SSD) where I'm pulling via IMAP from Google (their
professional company service thingy), but maintain a local 24GB cache of
I've got about 1/6th of that in IMAP spread across 1,118 folders.
It's slower than molasses in january. Moving eMail
'folders' often has it sit and spin the beachball for 2-3 seconds -
dozens of times a day. And I just can't work out why - I mean, yes, it's
a lot of ruddy eMail, but it's a monster of a laptop and it should be
pulling/moving on the SSD when it's getting stuck before it's even tried
to send the move message to google.
How are you interfacing with Gmail? IMAP or something else. ? I think
Thunderbird supports interfacing with Gmail in another protocol. I may
I _detest_ the gmail interface, I'd really prefer
to continue using a
client like this - but TBird just isn't getting any better.
What am I missing here? Are there better options? Is
not designed for large mail sets for people who actually work for a living?
I don't know. I too wonder if there's another option. Hence why I'm
hoping that Eudora's source code release & license will help this situation.
Responses should probably be sent to me directly. And
my thanks in
advance for your opinions, my curmudgeonly behaviour is really eating up
my time and I'm hoping there's a reasonable fix beyond "Suck it up and
Grant. . . .
