Not sure you're comparing apples to apples here.  Evolution is much
faster in imap mode against an exchange server with imap enabled
than it is with the same server in exchange-connector mode (but
of course it doesn't get the calendar that way).   Evolution seems
a lot faster to me than thunderbird at things like flipping between
threaded and non-threaded views of a large mailbox.
