Cool, but 1GB is still an order of magnitude worse that what
I'd expect :<   I remember Email::MIME had huge explosions with
some 30MB+ spam messages:
  (maybe gmime can help)

Depending on your storage speed/latency, more RAM can still help
significantly with Xapian.  The NVME stuff has amazing numbers,
but my mobos are too old and I'm still stuck on SATA 2.

Is nntpd better?  That only uses Email::Simple and not MIME;
so less explosions.
