Is there a command to display only what I want, a specific day or
perhaps reverse the order so that today's messages are at the top,
display first? Better yet I would think would be to display them in
Thunderbird but I don't know how to do that ...
Most decent mail clients will let you read a local mailbox (read files
directly, without needing a mail server). Try configuring yours to read
a local mailbox in: /var/spool/mail/yourusername
It'll treat that the same as any other mail you work with (read, delete,
order the list of messages in the way that you want to, etc).

Boilerplate: All mail to my mailbox is automatically deleted, there is
no point trying to privately email me, I only get to see the messages
posted to the mailing list.
Linux servers are always being dæmonised...
