    I used to get the same effect when I asked pine to open the
    Linux-Kernel mailbox on my system. I long since cured that by
    having procmail split Linux-Kernel mail into multiple mailboxes,
    one for each calendar week.

    The basic problem there is that any mail client needs to know
    just how many messages are in a particular folder to handle that
    folder, and the only way to do this is to count them all. That's
    what takes the time when one opens a large folder.

    Best wishes from Riley.
