I have 20K+ emails in my inbox, takes about 15+ minutes to sync. And it is the same for each time I select the inbox.
So the actual problem is that it does not seem to save the index into it's cache - I wonder why... Would you be willing to run a debug-enabled version for me? After that slow sync it should be pretty fast.
The problem with a limited sync is that you limit functionality by a lot then. IMAP servers also return emails in different orders, so sometimes you'd get the 500 oldest emails instead of newest :)
Iris supports non-cached folder viewing internally (it can actually load headers as you scroll), but I did not get around to implementing a UI for all the settings and I have no ETA on that.
400MHz is slightly below what I'd consider minimum spec for this app, by the way.
