email slows down when new email is coming in


I run my laptop on wireless and since comcast changed their email system, I keep getting "pages unresponsive " messages when on email page.  The problem occurs when there is incoming email. That stops me from being able to read a new email, put an email(article ) in a folder or move the cursor at all. I have to wait until it does what i call "unlock". Then the cursor becomes functional and I can do what I want on the page until the next incoming email. I use google chrome. I do have a lot of folders set and use malwarebytes for protection, Could the last two be a factor? any suggestions from anybody?  I also have a gmail accoiunt that works just fine. I don't use it instead, because i don't know how to save my articles and such using their system,.  thanx in advance.
