Hello Roland,

Thank you for all your work with Thunderbird. I've been a user for well over a decade now.

I appreciate your recent improvements. There is one problem though. If TB goes into compression mode (when it reaches a threshold in a given folder) then the whole application blocks up till the compression is done. This makes it impossible to do anything else, write, read or transmit. In cases like mine, where I have a lot of different folders, this happens far too frequently.

So I would suggest putting the compressions into the exit loop. When a user is all done, give him/her the option to do whatever compressions that might be appropriate at the moment.

For the moment, I've turned compressions off altogether.

All the best,
