I was just thinking the same thing yesterday. After trying to use
thunderbird 3.0b2, I have found it unusable.

I have tried a fresh .thunderbird directory and switching to the i586
version from the x86_64 version. It is still horrible. I do have huge
folders with 10k+ messages in them. Thunderbird 3.0b2 seems to scan all
folders and download all messages. With the fresh .thunderbird I
with a 32mb .thunderbird folder, but after leaving it over night with
just one of my three accounts it was up to 2gb.


Thunderbird 3.0b2 seems to behave after I turn off the sync feature
for each account. I think at the very least this feature needs to be
turned off by default.

Afaik fetching whole messages (as opposed to headers) for IMAP accounts
was an upstream decision.

I understand, but on the other hand does Fedora want a dozen bug reports
over Thunderbird being useless, because of a crappy default?


I don't know why, but this workaround seems to make thunderbird usable despite this problem.
