I have a new client that has GB of emails spread out over 6 email addressess.  3 are POP with GoDaddy and 3 are IMAP with gmail hosting their domain. Overall, on 2 different PCs he has these setup on - a desktop and laptop - are pretty much crawling when you open outlook.  Any idea how to approach increasing the speed?  

For say, 15GB of mail, is 1 protocol better than others with POP, IMAP and Exchange?  

And the IMAP email accounts have the [gmail]/... files AND local files.  That defeats the point of imap, right?  Keeping everything on the server?
