T'bird and Claws are both set to check every 10 minutes. ANyone explain how Claws identifies when new mail lands in my mailbox, and why it takes so long to appear in the mail client, compared to other mail clients?
The other MUA's you mention all have implemented IMAP IDLE or better

has not implemented this feature.
