Dear Dan,

Sorry to get back to this email so late.

I am not using org-nnml but the problem is still there.

Upon opening a link, org calls gnus-other-frame which would try to get
new emails first and then switch to the group buffer.

The time it takes is getting new emails. I know many Gnus users can not
stand the speed and single-threadedness of Gnus and have been using 3rd
party application such as fetchmail to retrieve emails. However, it is
completely unnecessary to retrieve new emails when opening Gnus link.
