How's the speed if you use browser access to owa?
That depends on the load on the server.

If I don't run filters, even evolution is fast.  I can copy (move
really doesn't move) messages to my local mailbox, expunge the server inbox in ~2 minutes on 270 messages.

I would add to that to , if you don't run spam detection evolution is

However, I have this philosophy. Normally when I run evolution I also
have some mail to send. While the mail is downloading I compose my new
messages. By the time I am finished the old mail is usually downloaded.
I like evolution and I like that it has built in junk filtering so
waiting a few minutes is not a big deal. I run evolution when I first
log on and you can perform other tasks while new mail is loading. From
them on new mail is brought down every 5 minutes with out my noticing
any lag time.

Thunderbird junk filters are so much faster than Evolutions and seem to work better IMHO. Again, I believe that this is an issue with Outlook Web Access which is the only way to get mail.

I have tried all the settings in Evolution to get it to check my mail every 30 minutes. No luck. I think those features only work with imap or pop access.

I wish I could compose my mail while Evolution is downloading mail but it is so hard to know what I am responding to when I have not read the mail yet. :)

I guess I was spoiled by Thunderbird and I find that Thunderbird 2.0 is so much faster than the older versions.

I will do what I can to stick with TB as it works for me.

Due to the move to M$ Exchange Server,
   anything that is a priority, please phone.
