Sad, but true. Hmmm, I think KMail + a decent filesystem or fast IMAP server does quite well - except for search, but there Akonadi will help hopefully. I am using KMail from KDE 4.4.3 now at home with a POP3 account that carries dozen of mailinglists - including linux kernel mailinglist with 30000-40000 mails in just one folder. With KMail from KDE 3.5.9/3.5.10 at work with a Zimbra Collaboration Suite 6.0.6 als IMAP server I have the same. I even had 70000-80000 in linux kernel mailinglist folder there once and it was usable. If any GU based fat client scales, its KMail IMHO. Believe me, my mail accounts are pretty insane. Easily several 100000 mails. BTW for people who wonder whether it could make sense to store mail metadata in a MySQL database: Zimbra does just that and is *blazingly* fast. Additionally it builds up a search index via Lucene in the background. That would be Nepomuk in KDE. So I think Akonadi and Nepomuk can become really quite a relief for heavy mail users like me. Sure in company environments one usually have a server for that, but for my personal use I find installting Zimbra a bit of an overkill. And there I hope Akonadi- and Nepomuk-based KMail 2 will bring lots of joy. -- Martin 'Helios' Steigerwald - http://www.Lichtvoll.de GPG: 03B0 0D6C 0040 0710 4AFA B82F 991B EAAC A599 84C7
