Mail.app much slower than Outlook 2000

Has anyone else noticed that Mail.app is painfully slow?

I thought it might be because I only connect with a lowly 56k modem, but my Outlook 2000 on Win98 downloads the same email messages in a fraction of the time.

Is it just my setup, or is Mail.app a seriously slothful application?

It downloaded 350 e-mails over the 56k dial-up on my grandfather's G4 in less than 10 seconds. Not what I would call slow. It d/ls even faster on my dsl line.

Wow, that <em>is</em fast, but is that from an IMAP server? That is to say, is that just downloading the email headers?

The one on the 56k is pop3. Mine is on imap set to d/l the entire message including images.

Check your set-up. You might want to use imap without downloading/caching images etc. Not sure what else you can do though.

Good luck,
