    I’ve been looking around the Thunderbird messaging forums and now the new Mozilla Messaging site for someone knowledgeable on the technical side of Thunderbird & IMAP. I use Thunderbird every day all day… with several accounts all using IMAP and for the most part love it. There are however a couple of areas where I’m hoping you might be able to help and/or point me to a solution or tell me that it might be something you guys are working on. 1) Navigating to folders with large numbers of messages often cause TB to take a long time before displaying list/content (begins to slow down at around 500+ messages). Most painful folder is my ‘Sent’ folder because I go to that one often. 2) Message searches are very slow when doing full content searches. All folders are marked to be available offline and are compacted frequently. I’m a C/C++ programmer and have some familiarity with IMAP protocol, but know very little about the TB internals… any insight would be greatly appreciated.

    Henrik, your are definitely right, these are UX areas of TB need improvement, and TB community is working on both of them. First item falls into improving IMAP experience category I guess, this is something I am working on with others. I haven’t experienced such behavior, but haven’t tested with +500 messages nor offline folder yet. Thanks for heads up. Second one is also work in progress. If you have any interest to contribute to these projects – or others, please let me know. TB has a great community, and new TB enthusiasts are always welcome.

    I am listing couple links that you can start reading to understand more about TB development:
