Sending emails is slow when profile stored on network drive

The 3.1 build identifier is: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-GB; rv:126.96.36.199) Gecko/20100608 Lightning/1.0b2 Thunderbird/3.1 The 3.0.5 build identifier is: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows; U; Windows NT 5.1; en-US; rv:188.8.131.52) Gecko/20100512 Thunderbird/3.0.5 The profile is stored on a network (Samba) share, as part of a roaming profile. The IMAP server is dovecot 1:1.0.15-2.3+lenny1 When composing a message, sending it can take betwen 15 - 45 minutes. What appears to be happening is that every IMAP account (either 3 - to 21) is being checked first, and *then* sending via SMTP is happening. (I have tshark network captures illustrating this). Additionally I have a (single) machine configured with 21 IMAP accounts using Thunderbird 3.0.5. It's account profile is stored on the local (C:) drive. Sending and composing an email takes 15 - 45 SECONDS (order of magantude difference). Reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Compose email 2. Click send. 3. Wait 15 to 45 MINUTES (when local folders are stored on Network) whilst "Looking up server <SMTP server>" appears. Expected Results: Mail should be sent, via SMTP, first in under a minutes
Version: unspecified → 3.0
I have three test machines (3.0.5 with profile on network drive, 3.1 with profile on network drive and 3.0.5 with profile on local drive); the version is not the issue. Thus I have upped it to 3.1 The location of the profile seems key.
Version: 3.0 → 3.1

Anand doesn't respond. I'm going to assume this is a dup of bug 558528
