Description Pieter Bootsma 2006-02-02 09:07:32 UTC
Version:           1.9.1 (using KDE KDE 3.5.0)
Installed from:    Debian testing/unstable Packages
OS:                Linux

When KMail is fetching mail, feeding it to it's spamfilter, etc the GUI is not responsive. It is annoying if you want to do a quick round of reading mail if you have to wait 3 seconds each time you flag your mail as spam.

I haven't checked this, but the cause of this is probably because KMail is single-threaded. If these background tasks could be run in a seperate thread it would greatly improve the responsiveness of KMail.

This is probably a duplicate.
