Why does MyPopBarrier use so much CPU?
MyPopBarrier is an old program. At the beginning it could only remove email from one account, and it displayed only source code. Then we added a basic filter, then we tried to decode source code to make it it more readable, then we added multiple accounts, then this and then that. MyPopBarrier needs to be completely rewrite but I have no time and it would be hard. And it works not so bad then….
How can I make it go faster?
Don't add too much words in Filers "Words to block" and "Words to let pass". You can also reduce "Load the xx first lines of the message", 100 is a good value I think.
