Try turning off MIME file scanning, in the email tab(s) in each scanner. I would leave scanning of MIME files enabled for at least a periodic scan (say weekly?) just in case.
A full GB of files in MIME format is quite a bit of 'data' to scan. Are these a huge number of small email messages or are these a lesser number with a large email Attachments. In any case, you may want to do some house cleaning on these large mail boxes. Though I realize the information may be 'needed' in the future, as the size of the box gets larger, so does the likely-hood of corruption and the job of recovery. Obviously, performance becomes an issue as well. At least, 'Compact' the folders.
Hope this is helpful. Let us know if you need more help.
Thank you for such a fast answer.
Maybe my explanation was not good enough, since english is not my main language. Sorry about that.
MIME scan is already off. Compacting is already active on thunderbird installations as soon as it could recover 5 MB. Mailboxes just grow and grow, is something I have to deal with. Inbox an Sent files are just big, many messages and some great attachments I suppose since I can't check each user mail.
The problem here is On Access Scan, and I really think these exclusions are the right way.
c:\documents and settings\ is too big.
What about this: c:\documents and settings\*\application data\Thunderbird\profile\ ?
Just in case, someone searches for this isue.
On-Access Defaul Processes Policies -> Exclusions ->
c:\documents and settings\*\application data\Thunderbird\profiles\*.default
Also exclude subfolders
You're welcome grin
