The issue is not whether it works fast for you, but if it works at all for others. Without CAPA, it can't know if your server supports the "fast" POP commands. Thunderbird might just send the commands anyway, and if your server supports them, great. However, then the poor guy whose server doesn't support CAPA or the needed download commands cannot get his email at all.
