The problem is that it is not remembering the last read msg pointer for 
very long. So clicking on the coco folder gets me a spinning dumb-bell 
cursor for nearly a minute while it scans the tree, and may open the 
oldest msg there, not the most recently read. It could happen in any 
folder, its all maildir, but I have expiry rules set for most of the 
other 40 some folders which keeps the size down..

HTML is the biggest waste of bandwidth ever invented.

Somebody has to pay namecheap, and somebody has to buy the bandwidth and 
the hard drive pile of fails. Unless the income to support all that is 
present, those of us who can send a twenty now and then, should. Nobody 
is demanding we buy the SW, so its still free, but we, all of us, should 
support its continued existence. TANSTAAFL.
