Speed up your Apple Mail

Lately I experienced slow accessing my mail using Apple Mail, same as true when sending an email. It took couple of minutes before my message sent.

I came across this site and it helps me. Basically all you have to do is to invoke a single shell command $ sqlite3 ~/Library/Mail/Envelope\ Index vacuum; to optimize the SQLite DB where Apple Mail uses to store indexes and subject lines of emails.

My Apple Mail is snappier now.
