I tried testing meli with my smallest notmuch setup and found it quite 
When starting meli it takes about 14 seconds to actually show the mail 
interface. I only have around 9000 Mails in my inbox and since notmuch 
is used and the first page only shows around 70 mails it shouldn't take 
this long.
Doing an equivalent query in python
> msgs = Query(db, 'tag:inbox').search_threads()
takes less than half a second. I didn't yet look at what the code is 
doing, but since the notmuch interface does the querying and sorting of 
the mails meli should probably figure out how many messages fit on my 
screen and only render those at first.

If meli somehow has to prerender every message and do additional queries 
it could certainly explain a larger delay, but taking 14 seconds seems a 
little excessive.

Kind regards,
