Στο παρακάτω κείμενο περιγράφει έναν τρόπο για να επιταχύνουμε το πολύ καλό πρόγραμμα του λειτουργικού :

As everyone knows, it is possible to get quite a speed boost out of Mail.app by stripping all the bloat out of its Envelope index, an SQLite database Mail uses to store senders, recipients, subjects and so on. In a past Hawk Wings tip

, I suggested that quitting Mail, deleting the Envelope file and restarting Mail would force a rebuild that produces a leaner, faster email experience.
In October last year Dallas noticed a faster way to get the same result and posted it in the comments to that tip.
And there it remained until I noticed that Shaun Inman

(an iCelebrity and developer of Mint

which counts the peeps on Hawk Wings) had noticed it.
Here it is.
1. Quit Mail.
2. Open Terminal.
3. Type the following:
cd ~/Library/Mail
sqlite3 Envelope\ Index
An sqlite> prompt will appear.
At that prompt, type vacuum subjects;.
After a short delay, the prompt will return. Type Control-D to exit.
4. Restart Mail and enjoy the extra speed.
The first time he tried this, Rob Griffiths of macOSXHints reduced his Envelope index from 25.9MB to 4.5MB. My result was less dramatic (21.6MB -> 17.6MB) but Mail.app still felt a lot more zippy.
Some anecdotal evidence suggests that POP users don’t see the same reductions. Can any POP user out there confirm this?
