    How can we speed up message searching and message moving given the following:

    Maildir on Linux ext3 (with Indexing enabled)
    Courier IMAP; Thunderbird version (20080213);
    Have resynchronised all mail folders after deleting the .msf files.
    Have compacted all folders.

    Some of the folders contain 1000's of messages but surely this should not be a problem?!?!?

    Opening folders is slow - e.g. 15-30 secs.
    Moving messages is slow - e.g. 6-10 secs.
    Searching folders is very slow - e.g., 40 sec - 1 minute (though sometimes is goes on ad nauseum).

    Is this a problem with maildir or imap or t.bird???

    ANY help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you.
