i have *any* message i ever sent or received until now starting with
2003 in a folder-structure, search is full indexed and fast, eahc folder
is one mbox and at the end of the day mbox is more effective than maildir
5 GB in 3379 files, this year around 100000 messages
why mbox is more efefctive?
if you at least have subfolders for each yaer you normally do not
touch and change any previous ones - so they are unchanged and rsync
is very fast because it transfers differences - i sync my complete
prfile each day from my homeserver to my office wrokstation with
rsync and it takes around one minute with *all my data* not only
the mozilla profiles
+1 for Thunderbird. We use it here at the school where I work, and while I
don't have people's exact file sizes and counts on hand, I can say definitely
it handles a lot of email; most people have boxes dating back to 2004 and it
hasn't been an issue.
I use Kmail for my own work machine just to keep up with the project but I am
not prepared to have 'real' users use it yet. Still too many issues that I
see, generally, on a daily basis.
