Subject:   How can I speed up mail ?

The only thing that _really_ slows my ibook/jaguar down is mail.app. Often it "saves indexes" or "writes changes to the volume". That takes ages. Of course, I have several mailboxes with a lot of email(300mb) in them ( the trash is emptied regularly), but has it to slow down all of my computer work ? As long as mail.app is doing its writing and reading stuff on my garddisk, the computer responds zero. Any idea ?

    I could mend exactly this behavior by spending more RAM to my G3 PowerBook
