STEPS TO REPRODUCE THE PROBLEM:
Load a mailbox folder with many thousands of mails.
Mail loads and allows me to select an email to view.
List of emails takes several minutes to appear (often hanging the app and
causing a watchdog to ask me to kill it). When mails to appear the list is
unresponsive. *eventually*, *sometimes* it will allow me to browse the list a
little and open mails.

This is a bit vague. For future reference please provide exact steps - I assume
this is about IMAP?
This is about IMAP.
1. Register an IMAP account with Modest such that there is a folder in the
account with 10,000+ emails.
2. Load the home screen (account selection) of modest and check "Send &
Recieve" from the menu. Allow this to run its course.
3. Click on the account with the large folder. Select the large folder. You
will now have a very long time to wait before the UI is again responsibe and
you'll be lucky if you ever get an email from that folder.
Bug 3762 is very similar to this, in fact it's about the same issue.
