Description Alan Cox 2002-03-24 20:33:23 UTC
I imported my old mailbox into Evolution to play with it - the importer works
beautifully. Unfortunately now Evolution sticks up a plain blue square and thats
basically it. So far it has used over 2.5 minutes of CPU time and nothing has
yet happened. Mutt and Elm take 5s and 1s respectively of CPU time to load the
same mailbox.

It appears that something is very wrong with the performance of the evolution
mail loading - that it loads unconditionally. that it has no cancel button, that
it has no progress bar.

I was under the impression that it had a database system for fast handling of
large mailboxes  ?

Still nothing has happened. There also seems to be no way to get your evolution
back after this situation occurs either.

Is this reading in an mbox?  If so, how large of one?

Yes, evolution does indexing... sometimes its importers get confused though :(

Comment 3 Alan Cox 2002-03-26 00:09:04 UTC
The mailbox is 65,000 messages. The importer handles it beautifully, evolution
takes forever to load it but is snappy once it has (elm by comparison loads it
in 1.5 seconds of CPU time, mutt in 5)

With small mailboxes 1000 or less it seems fine

Comment 4 Alan Cox 2002-03-26 01:21:28 UTC
Got a ximian answer. The index was corrupt because I aborted the thing at 60,000
messages, it was reindexing. With the index ok it loads 60,000 messages in about
10 seconds.
