Empath does both :) Actually, it's not currently multithreaded, but
it doesn't need to be. The architectures of Empath and KDE are such
that you don't need to use threads to do asynchronous operations.

When you load Empath, it syncs with all your folders in the background.
Then when you click on a message, it retrieves it in the background.
It does everything that may block in the background. I hate a UI
that stalls.


Advance science by expanding the pool of incompatible alternatives.
