I feel Mozilla Thunderbird is slow while sending a message and copying it to the sent box. I have got many accounts therefore implementing tiles helps!

I feel many times that sending of message is slow in Mozilla Thunderbird. Where as in my Android phone I could send a message very fast.

One more thing is implementation on tiles on home screen helps to scroll too many accounts. The interface is too basic. Sorry if am not wrong.

Chosen solution

Thunderbird does send slowly by most standards, leaving the sending dialog up until it gets a message from the server that it has the message and is sending it on. Most programs send in the background and Thunderbird can do that as well, but error reporting of transmission errors is wanting. You can enable sending in the background by setting mailnews.sendInBackground to true in the Config Editor and Thunderbird send will be much faster. But you might want to look at the dependent bugs on this bug . before you just "do it" to make sure you can live with the consequences. Most users will not have an issue.
