Well, those are basically the same things. Dovecot's indexes contain the
headers that TB wants, so it already kind of fetches the indexes.. The
only way to avoid fetching all of them would be if TB was smart and
fetched headers of messages only visible on screen. There are two
clients I know of that supports that: (Al)pine and Trojita.
