When the power failed I had Mail and Browser open. When I opened mail after the reboot it took almost 10 minutes to rebuild my inbox, during which time I did not have access to mail. The time should be much shorter. I have had rebuild problems one other time but I am not sure what happened to bring it on. Reproducible: Didn't try Steps to Reproduce: 1.Run Mail 2. Turn off the computer without exiting windows (simulate power fail) 3. Restart Actual Results: Mailbox took a long time to rebuild (10 minutes or more) Expected Results: The mailbox should set up like it does under normal conditions, which is quite fast.
How big are your Mail folders ? -> Databse (msf rebuild)

via mail: >Inbox is 291 MB (7034 messages). Also notice that I had a large number of mozilla >newsgroup messages that I have now unsubscribed from. Could be "normal" if Mozilla must read 291MB to rebuild the index files. (depends on your system) BTW: Do you sometimes compact your folders ?
Please try a 1.4 build - this has been sped up a lot. Compacting your folders will also help.
