To be exact, you are referring to messages with no *visible* content when displayed in Mail.app; but these are in fact messages with a corrupted MIME header. If they contain large attached files, FoxTrot handles the encoded attachment as if it was plain text, and in this situation, indexing can become abnormally slow.

and was growing frustrated with its slow searches and increasing
instability as my database grew. Decided to look for an alternative
and tried Mail, MailSmith, Thunderbird and PowerMail. Settled on
PowerMail and am extremely happy with this application."
