    Thunderbird not responding

    I am running three(3) different computers: Xp, 7 and 8.1. On all of them I am having long delays when I try to delete or archive messages.

    Can someone please tell me how to cure the problem?



    Thank you.

    We don't do personal email, you need to check the forum for responses. That way the questions and answers are available to all.

    How is your email set up?
    Are you using IMAP or POP?
    Do you have only one account?

    Delays in delete or archive would likely happen when you use IMAP as you have to perform the task on both your machine and the server. Is your mail download slow or normal?

    cheers, Paul

    I removed your email address from your post. Supplying your email address in a public forum is a Spam magnet.

    I had a problem deleting my Thunderbird e-mails until I uninstalled my antivirus and reinstalled it. I am using Adaware

    You might try compacting your Thunderbird folders.
