If I could provide you, I would. I do not have in ~/Maildir any emails
when movemail is moving it. So it is empty all in cur/new/tmp.

My email reading method is to finish all emails, before moving new
mails, so each time I am moving emails, my inbox is completely
empty. No other application has any problems writing into that
Maildir, so it is not logical that movemail is delaying 5 minutes
incorporating changes to destination mailbox, and that it depends of
my system.

Maybe movemail is slow? But I cannot debug it, as I don't have that

Sorry, not quite clear. When application requires 5 minutes to deliver
5-10 emails into my Maildir, which is empty, then whatever it is
underlying, like incorporating changes, it is a bug, as no changes
require 5 minutes.

just the command line of the movemail, something like below. 

The debug is always turned on.

If movemail requires 5 minutes to incorporate changes like you state,
it shall say so in the debug output exactly what it is doing. As
otherwise I cannot debug it.


(defparameter movemail
  (concatenate 'string
               "movemail --debug-level='mailbox.prot,!trace6' -v 'imaps://" 
username ":" password "@" server ":" port "/"
               ;; "movemail -v 'imaps://" username ":" password "@" server ":" 
port "/"        
               (car (gethash (intern mailbox) mailboxes)) "' \""
               (cadr (gethash (intern mailbox) mailboxes))
