I don't think there is any noticeable difference in Thunderbird loading my mailbox or email msg which are in HTML (CPU increases in last decade eliminated any conversion time cost). Perhaps this is just mutt "not being very good"? ;) If it is, why not just swithc to a "better" client?

No, I'm running mutt on my home machine, which fetches it using
fetchmail.  CPU time is not a problem, disk reading time is.

Are you running on a 286 or so? Your mailbox will most likely largely be in RAM too. These are issues for your client to deal with.. rather than the rest of the world to optimise for you! (Hopefully I don't sound too blunt..)

Kind regards, Jon
