Mail search y u slow

Dear Lazyweb, some time in the last few months, searching in has gotten ridiculously slow. Type something into the search field, wait 25+ seconds for the list to update. It used to be instantaneous. Any ideas for un-fucking it?

I assure you that if you decide to "just google that for me", all you're gonna find are decade-old posts saying "reset your BIOS NVRAM while slowly turning thrice widdershins".

Already tried: "sudo mdutil -E /" and "mdimport -r /System/Library/Spotlight/Mail.mdimporter"
