When I delete an email it takes about 10 seconds to respond

Posted

When I delete an email it takes about 10 seconds to respond before its deleted. This just started happening. When I deleted before this started, it would be an instant delete. All other functions on Thunderbird seem to be working OK.

Thanks for your reply but it did not solve my problem. When I delete an email It still takes about 10 seconds to delete the email.
