spun off of bug 34073. We are currently showing the percent progress per folder during compaction. Will be nice to show a total percent progress while compacting many folders. steps Open mail. Delete mails from some of the folders( inbox, other local folder etc.) Compact folders (from menu or auto compact) Result: Progress is shown per folder. It would be nice to show the total % progress for all the folders.

Definetly a killer enhancement : when you start a global compact folder, you never know when it finishes !!! even a "dumb" global progress indicator should be great (I don't care about where it is on the screen) !
Another idea regarding this one : why not display the compaction progress inside the tree (in the folders row), as digits or whatever. IMHO it would be great, as the user should see easily the state of compaction on the folder(s) (think parallel ;) and this would leave the progress bar at the bottom free for other operations.
