Actual results: The GUI is very unresponsive for periods of 1~2seconds. It's as if the GUI and mail downloading happens in the same thread. Quite annoying. Expected results: The GUI should be responsive.
Apparently this is because of MSE running in the background and checking the mails while they are downloaded. Still, I don't understand why the GUI blocks.

Ok, I agree that MSE is the cause, but I do not agree that it is also the problem. MSE, like any other antivirus software, is just doing it’s job. I still think that the problem is with Thunderbird and the way the GUI interacts with the downloading and file-accessing threads. These interactions could be optimized so that the GUI does not freeze if access to a file is delayed.
