Personally I use Gnus at the moment, which treats email as if it were
a newsgroup, very handy for a high volume list like this. It can sort
mails into different groupsaccording to headers etc, though I use
procmail for that. As it is part of emacs you can do all the standard
things you can do in emacs within emails and folders. If you don't like
emacs anyway you'll probably hate it though, and it can be a bitch to
Mutt is also every good, though I haven't, yet, figured out how to use
it with mails sorted into folders with procmail, mainly because I haven't
really tried since I switched from evolution to gnus.
