It seems to refill faster (maybe 3 seconds) if all 50 slots are money.

This is a classic symptom of item caching. Mailbox items all have unique
item IDs, so they are not visible to you until the client has loaded them
into the item cache. This is also why looting is so slow the first time you
do it after a patch, and why things show as "unknown" or "retreiving item
Some things in the game block until the data is available (loot and mail
being the most noticeable ones), and some vamp with placeholders until the
real data is available (character names, item icons, etc.). What you're
seeing with your mail is simply a delay while the server shovels more data
into your client. *
That sounds true. However, Auctioneer used to have to get AH items 50
at a time too. Now it can grab all 30,000+ items at one time,
completing the scan in under a minute instead of 15-30 minutes.
I was simply hoping someone knew of an addon that would similarly just
give me the entire 500 items at once instead of 50 at a time, or baring
that, at least ways to speed up the process.
