I am in the process of upgrading from a Pentium 4 running Windows XP Home (SP3) to an Intel Core i7-4770 system under Windows 8 (x64). At the same time I am looking into the possibility of changing my mail program to Thunderbird.

I have installed Thunderbird 24.3.0, and I am gradually getting into the workings. Generally I like what I am seeing, but I have one major problem -- it takes a very long time for e-mails to be processed, whether they are being sent or received.

In researching this problem in Mozilla support I did find a reference to Bitdefender which I am using as an AV program. Is there some component of Thunderbird which I should be excluding from Bitdefender's attentions, or can anyone suggest any other reasons for the glacial pace of e-mail input/output?

For some reason I'm unable to ask a question or make a comment in the thunderbird support section. I'm logged in and have gone through all the subcategories, but it doesn't bring up any option to post.

As can be seen by this post, I don't have this problem posting to the firefox support forum.
