Speeding up Apple Mail.app

I love my Mac. I hate Mail. Get a few thousand messages in there and it slows down considerably at launch, waiting up to a couple of minutes for the first message to display. This AppleScript has been making it’s way around the software developer blogosphere. I thought I’d share it with my video geek friends.

One Thought on “Speeding up Apple Mail.app

  1. Actually Frank, VacuumMail performs the same “optimizations” that the script you linked to does, but has the added advantage of being completely automated. It will periodically run the “vacuum subjects” command for you once a week, so you can just set it and forget it, ala the Ronco Rotisserie Oven.
