Email slow when updating deleted items top ten free mobile dating sites
What it isn’t very good at is managing the huge folders that accumulate on the local side of the equation – the folders on your PC. As you can see, I have Thunderbird set up to only compact folders if it will save me over 20MB of space.
This is actually a good thing – I could even set it lower to enable more frequent compacting.
Let us know how tweaking your Thunderbird settings as described above helped you improve its performance.
October 5, 2012 Has your Exchange-based Outlook mail client performance gotten slower over time? Or do you often get a message saying something like “Requesting data from Microsoft Exchange Server” that is slow to clear before you see your mail update?
Why did I end up with such huge folders that needed compacting?
Because up until recently Thunderbird didn’t delete files that you deleted. But now, under ““, enable the archiving of your messages.
But obviously that single-folder filing approach could make you more prone to reaching the Exchange single-folder item countlimit (again, if using an old Exchange server); any one folder loaded with lots of items, like the Processed Mail folder, can cause the problem. According to that article, if you have Exchange Server 2003 or 2000, the limit will be somewhere around 2,500 to 5,000 items in one folder.
Before I explain more details on how this limit works, how to identify it, and specific strategies to fix it, let me first give you some background on why 1MTD or MYN users should be particularly aware of this.
Why 1MTD and MYN Users Should Know This As you may know, my primary recommendation in 1MTD and MYN for filing mail is to file all saved Outlook e-mail into one folder called the Processed Mail folder.
The final setting that can help your Thunderbird performance is only fetching message headers, rather than the entire message itself.
This one change alone can reduce your initial Thunderbird start-up time tremendously. He's worked 13 years in automation engineering, 5 years in IT, and now is an Apps Engineer.
But also note that even though you may have a newer version of Outlook, the Exchange Server version your company runs behind your Outlook is invisible to you, and it could be quite old and so still subject to this issue.
