Spinning wheel on Mac when starting up
I just installed Thunderbird on Mac High Sierra. The problem I'm having is that when the computer boots, or the user logs in, Thunderbird has the spinning wheel/beachball for quite a long time, several minutes. It does eventually go away. I've not experienced this problem with either Windows or Linux. The mail server is a locally hosted IMAP server and the user's Thunderbird profile is also stored on a network drive -- on the same server as the mail, in fact. On the one hand, I can see how the remote profile might slow things down, especially if there is a large calendar (which there is). Also, the Account Settings > Disk Space, is set to keep the last 30 days, on the "local" drive. Since the profile, desktop, etc. is located on the server, perhaps this settings is useless -- and perhaps slowing things down? On the other hand, with a remote profile and desktop with Linux I never noticed this problem.
