Thanks for the hint.

KMail often also has this when you expand progress indicator bar. Just I 
found it often to have no effect whatsoever.

Well… after that longer lasting indexing completed, it is still 
considerably better with PostgreSQL. So I am happy I changed.

I have the impression it can do more in parallel. I was able to delete a 
mail while filtering was ongoing. That did not work before. I read in a 
article about improvements in just released major PostgreSQL version 
that PostgreSQL can do some queries in parallel that MariaDB/MySQL would 
so sequentially. So this may help.

It just seems longer lasting indexing operations still seems to 
completely stall Akonadi.
