You can run a local IMAP server, and access your procmail filtered mail
that way (with either mail client).  But I'm not sure if that'll be a
speed improvement over Evolution directly accessing local files.

I'm not overly thrilled with either mail client, though I like
Thunderbird far less than Evolution.  I wish there was something sort of
like "The Bat!" (it's for Windows, unfortunately, and I'm NOT going to
run an emulator).

Don't send private replies to my address, the mailbox is ignored.
I read messages from the public lists.
