Question: Why is messages running so slow on Mojave

Why is messages running so slow on Mojave. I get the spinning beachball all the time now....


It takes forever to bring it up and it seems to have to start afresh every times I invoke it.

MacBook Air, macOS Mojave (10.14)

HI,


Go to Contacts and then it's Preferences and Accounts and restrict the Active accounts to one account.

Does this speed things up ?

Hi,


I seem to have missed your reply.

I apologise for that.


What else have you tried ?
