I have an issue that occurs each time when switching mailboxes in Mutt:

There's a noticeable delay until the other mailbox is visible, seemingly unconnected to the size of the mailboxes.

Is there anything I can configure in my muttrc to speed things up?


I found the answer on the Arch Linux Wiki:

set sleep_time = 0

Put this in your muttrc and the artificial lag of one second when switching mailboxes is gone.
