thanks for your reply. I will ask the developers of Evolution how they
managed resp. implemented this. But I could also imagine an alternative
solution for the freezing problem: Instead of freezing Sylpheed could
abort looking for new mails (and sending mails) if it does not get any
response from the mail server for, let’s say, ten seconds. 

Best regards and thank you very much for your great lightweight mail
