I had a look around and found claws-mail (rpm from rf) that appears to 
be a fork of sylpheed but more features according to wikipedia - 
installed just fine - very responsive - the re-scan does take time, 
however you know what's happening as it tells you - not like tbird - it 
justs locks for indeterminate times on random occasions.
