no, something odd is happening on your machine/profile. I'm not sure what. Do you have lots of other folders? What happens if you change your account settings not to check for new mail at startup for your imap server? Does it then take 50 seconds after you select your inbox?

My spouse sees this problem on her Mac OS X box too. She started seeing this problem when I upgraded her from Mozilla 1.3 to Mozilla 1.6. After reading the description for this bug report, we thought we'd eliminated the problem after removing all of her mail accounts (except for the local folders), then re-adding the IMAP account that mattered. The problem went away - for a while. It came back last week. Just now, I tested a download of 1.7RC1 to see if the problem was fixed. Its not. So it would seem that Mozilla eventually writes something to the local folders that causes it to slow down dramatically. Opening Mail for the first time takes approximately 20-30s. Once Mail has been opened, shutting down takes an excessive 20-30s. I'd be happy to run further tests to diagnose the problem, but I'm not familiar enough with Mozilla to know what to do. Suggestions welcome.
Prodded by an email to update: Over three years later, we do not see this bug, as we have switched to Thunderbird. Thunderbird is not exhibiting the same symptoms, which may or may not be of help, depending on how much of the code they share.
