Hi there, I’m curious about experiences folks have had with the Mail app. Specifically those with email accounts with large numbers of messages.
I have a Gmail account with over 120,000 messages in “All Mail” and over 30,000 messages in “Sent Mail”. I connected Mail to it via IMAP. Few of the individual messages are very large in size, probably none bigger than 1MiB. Thunderbird handles it fine and I can watch progress as it downloads message headers (takes about 1min from initial setup to do this). Nextcloud Mail isn’t able to open my Sent or All folders, it just shows a spinner even if I leave the tab open for hours. It does show me what’s in my inbox. My inbox has under 20 messages.
As far as not being able to open folders with many messages… is this expected? Anyone else have tips for using Mail with a Gmail (or other) IMAP account with lots of emails?
I found mail/admin.md at master · nextcloud/mail · GitHub and was thinking of trying
occ mail:account:sync next.
I found Opening large mailbox takes ages · Issue #1454 · nextcloud/mail · GitHub but it says it is already resolved.
