Every time I startup and go into my thunderbird mail, I download my mail and then the CPU usage goes bananas so I can't use my computer till it stops. It goes into the 90's and apparently has something to do with the "idle system process". How can I make it stop
since all my attempts have failed?

Thunderbird 3 RC2 Is Out, Fixes High CPU Usage Bug
The Mozilla Foundation has recently released the first release candidate (RC) of its Thunderbird 3 email client – after going through a total of 4 Beta releases. Mozilla has now bumped Thunderbird 3 to RC2 (Release Candidate 2) and in the process it has solved a few problems that plagued the software.
It seems there was a bug that caused previous Thunderbird 3 versions to use too much CPU and memory, hang at shutdown and shut down IMAP connections. The RC2 release fixes this bug – and it also two other bugs. It fixes a bug that caused the "download more dictionaries" option to not open properly; and it enables downloading new messages automatically by default for POP3 accounts.
Here are some other enhancements you can expect to get from Thunderbird 3 RC2:
- New Search with Advanced Filtering Tools
- New Global Search Field with Autocomplete
- New Mail Account Setup Wizard
- Redesigned Mail Toolbar
- Tabbed Email Messages
- Smart Folders
- New Message Summary View
- Column Headings
- Message Archive
- Activity Manager
- New Add-ons Manager
- Improved Address Book
- Improved Gmail Integration
- Integrated with Vista search results (Windows version only)
- Integrated with Spotlight (Mac OS X version only)
- Thunderbird 3 can import from Mail.app, can read your OS X address book, and can use Growl for new mail alerts (Mac OS X version only)
- IMAP Folder Synchronization
If you would like to get Thunderbird 3 RC2, a download location is available here.
The software is available for Windows, Mac OS X and Linux users; it is available in 49 different languages. Please note that Thunderbird 3 RC2 has been released for testing and community feedback, so do not use it in a production environment.
