lengthy indexing

I posted elsewhere about my overdue project of archiving and re-organizing mail.

My Eaglefiler mail library has been indexing imported messages and merged mailboxes for 4-5 hours, and the progress bar in the Activity window is only half done . Cause for concern?

Probably not, if it was a large amount of mail and EagleFiler is continuing to make progress. It’s very time consuming to create a full text index if you have phrase indexing on (the default). Also, if there are HTML-formatted e-mails, EagleFiler has to render them, and it also has to read any files attached to the e-mails.
