Thunderbird Email Performance
Posted on 2013-11-23
Win7 Pro 64bit on a Dell Optiplex 9010 I5-3550 16GB RAM C Drive: 128 GB SSD. Running Thunderbird 24.1.1 for my email client. I can click to delete or move a message from my inbox and it takes 3-7 seconds to perform the task. I’ve been using Thunderbird for a long time. My Thunderbird profile is very large, about 3.5GB. My system is built for speed. I should get much better response than that. I clear out the trash and compact the folders constantly.
When I first boot up everything goes very quickly. Then eventually the delay begins. Once begun it stays. I’m running Bitdefender, Malwarebytes anti-malware and Zamana Anti-Logger. I put on Bitdefender a few weeks ago but I’m pretty sure the problem began before that. I’ve turned off Malwarebytes and Zamana with no change. This is becoming increasingly annoying since email is such an important program.
