ThunderBird uses too many CPU resources

Since I’m working on a net book I find significant cpu resource usage by Thunderbird when i open the program. My CPU is AMD C-50.
I would be grateful for any suggestions for a less resource demanding email client. Will Evolution be an better alternative?

Found the solution


Interesting, thanks for sharing the solution. I’ve never had this issue. Maybe it depends on the type of e-mail account, like I use Gmail’s IMAP.

I am also using IMAP

After a while I decided to use Evolution as primary email software, Because it runs faster and smoother than Thunderbird.
