I find Evolution to be completely unusable for IMAP folders. I have dozens of IMAP folders with tens of thousands of messages on two servers. Thunderbird seems to handle this a LOT faster than evolution and crashes less often.

I've been using evolution with imap folders since 2002. I've never had
this sort of pain. Furthermore synchronization of imap to local works
well, too.

I use both evolution and thunderbird with IMAP :-) evolution for work, thunderbird for personal and FOSS stuff. I find thunderbird's GUI easier to use on those large FOSS threaded mailing lists. Over time I think i've suffered more from evolution bugs than thunderbird one, but thigns are pretty stable now.
I just recently switched from Evolution to Thunderbird -- I've simply
seen Evolution crash too many times, wiping out reams of email history
in the process.  Having Evolution hang at startup due to corruption of a
mailbox a few weeks ago was the last straw.

I find Thunderbird painfully slow, but at least it's working.

Part of me still regrets the day I didn't take up MH maintenance so
that I could continue to use MH and EXMH....  OK, not really...
