Are there some movements to make TB support multithread?

I have 3 big mailboxes with multiple folders. Whet a PC was shutdown for 3 weeks and you start it, open TB, so when syncing mailboxes TB is very sluggish, you have to wait
when it spots syncing...

AFAIK it does use multiple threads for checking for new mail. However, if you have global search/indexing enabled that runs as a background process. That is what might make it sluggish, if you have lots of mail.
