If you use a mail client, or a server, where the storage uses maildir,
then each message is a file.  That lends itself well to using tools that
index files on your hard drive.

[tim at localhost ~]$ uname -r

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