Resize subscription window

Reported by Olaf | January 31st, 2014 @ 09:11 AM

The window in which to subscribe to IMAP folders is rather small and not resizable. With over a 100 of folders to subscribe to things get a bit tedious on the small screen.

    Are you sure it's not resizable? I don't seem to have any problems with that. We are talking about the sheet shown when clicking “Edit Subscriptions” in the IMAP account window? (Make sure you try to resize the sheet and not the window.)

    • State changed from “new” to “resolved”
    • The bottleneck in MailMate is the number of messages (and not their size). I usually state that < 100K is fine, several 100K can work depending on hardware, more than 500K is not going to work well - if at all (this is based on user feedback). I recently fixed some memory leaks, but I doubt they can explain your memory allocation crashes. I might release a new test version later today, but that might be too late for you to try it out for the initial synchronization. My guess is that MailMate is not good enough at keeping the queue of messages in memory sufficiently small, but I haven't looked into this yet (I have a couple of similar reports for large accounts).

    • If MailMate does not become sufficiently responsive I'll provide a refund.

    • Did you try right-clicking an account/mailbox and look for “Synchronization Schedule”?

    • Syncing: Currently, mailboxes only inherit the setting of the account (and not a parent mailbox). I'm hoping to do more with mailbox level settings in the future (all kinds of settings).

    Thanks for your support! The license key is valid for 2.x as well.

    @Patrik: It's probably a bit better now, but I wouldn't expect miracles. Some users have more than 500K messages in MailMate, but that certainly wouldn't work on my hardware. I'm not sure what's up with Mail.app, but if it's a Google account then it could be because Google is throttling the connection (look for [THROTTLED] in the connection logs). MailMate would have the same problem. It's non-standard behavior and I haven't tried implementing a workaround (not sure there is one).
