The following may speed-up things

  (setq gnus-nntp-server            nil
        gnus-read-active-file       nil
        gnus-save-newsrc-file       nil
        gnus-read-newsrc-file       nil
        gnus-check-new-newsgroups   nil
        gnus-save-killed-list       nil)

Note that you can start gnus with    M-x gnus-no-server
to skip the news checking part. You can then enter your mail group.
Or, even faster, bind the command (gnus-fetch-group "name-of-my-mail-group")
to some key. This will bring you directly to your mail group, starting
gnus if necessary.
