Thunderbird--takes so long to build summary file

    I'm using TB 1.0.7 on a WinME.

    My concern is the length of time TB takes when starting for "building
    summary file for inbox." The taskbar shows it starting, stopping,
    then starting again several times; it takes about 2 to 3 minutes to
    get the Inbox started up.

    A recent series of posts discussed corrupted msf files so I'm
    wondering if deleting the msf file for the Inbox might help solve the
    problem.

    I've removed and deleted most all old emails, created new folders for
    some archival emails (not in Inbox), but it still takes a long time to
    load.

    Any suggestions? Thanks in advance.

    Building a summary file is creating the msf file.

    Have you tried compacting your folders?
