A five-to-six second delay occurred after re-deleting and undeleted mail. 

I searched for large attachments and found some residing in a subscribed public folder, but unsubscribing the user had no immediate effect.

I tried moving the ImapMail/ folder to the side as ImapMail/.old. 

Also tried moving the whole .thunderbird folder to .old.

Although this may appear as a minor problem, if you have hundreds of emails it takes a toll. The quick fix is to simply restart but it's not practical.

Any ideas?   Thank you

Reproducible: Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Delete an email (Accidental delete)
2.undo the Delete  (Also tried CNTL+Z) 
3.Delete again     (Good delete)
4. View or delete additional email from list. (5-6sec processing delay/email)

Actual Results:  
A five-to-six second delay will occur for any follwing deletion. The only fix for now is to restart the application.

Expected Results:  
Delete the email and not affect following deletions or mail viewing.

If you are just looking for ideas, then this is the wrong place.  Start from:

One idea would be to try the current release,, but I think a problem in your profile or on your server is a more likely cause.

It works for me with no delay using and Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.9pre) Gecko/2008040103 Thunderbird/3.0a1pre

John, are you seeing high CPU? (bug 393123 -> bug 296453)
and on a newer release?

(using windows) I don't see what you describe. But I do see cases where inline images don't display in a message C after prior message B is deleted before all of B's inline attachments has displayed - which I think would be a dupe of another bug, probably imap.

hmm, no response
