I see the opposite : when a mailbox has mail, it's bold.

Yes, that's a general slowing. Nothing I can fix, it's a fundamental

1) what do you mean by mailbox ? the message list ? the mailbox tree
2) a message comes in : do you have set automatic scan of server for
new messages ? Does the problem occurs also when asking the server
by hand ?
3) do you see the problem when running with all builtin libraries ?
4) about minimizing problems : which window manager do you
use (it can matter)
