Just a few seconds (under 5) on the systems I tried.

On a recent Macbook, this is NeoMutt 20180512 via Mac Ports.

On the PGLAF server, Mutt 1.5.21 (2010-09-15) under Ubuntu 14.04.5 LTS

Both systems have recent CPUs and > 4GB of memory, which probably helps.

Theoretically I can parse the mbox file into the list archives at https://lists.cpunks.org so they are navigable like the rest of the post-2013 archive that's already there.  I'll take a look at this...

The cypherpunks archive is public, so it will then become indexable by Google and the other search engines.
