42,641 emails in one folder

Kevin uploaded a really cool webmail fix last night… It used to be that if I had a more than a few thousand messages in a folder, I’d get an ugly IMAP error when I try to open that folder due to the size of the IMAP operations it was doing.  The fix made this process more efficient.

I just loaded one of my IMAP folders that has 42,641 emails in it and it came up in 4 seconds!  Way to go Kevin and Steve!

This fix is only in the Neptune version of webmail, which hasn’t been released to everyone yet – but if you don’t have it, its coming.
