actually switching folders, ... . Is there any way to optimize or at

There's a number of command line debug options that might yield some insight - run "geary -h" to get the full list. Failing that, running Geary in GDB and interrupting it when it is running slow, then seeing what the various threads are up to might suggest something.

It would be good to try to work out if it is caused by some server/network interaction or slow database queries (Geary uses a per-account SQLite embedded DB for storing messages locally). Depending on which version you are running it could also possibly be something like this: <>

Also, could you provide some details about your system (distro & version, DE/WM and version, if it has a disc or solid state drive) might help.
