Why not just use an IMAP server that has one? Modify settings to taste.

I use courier-imap-ssl, I haven't seen a problem yet. I even have a
couple of folders with 15K+ messages and one with 23K+ messages. I also
have 34 folders, 15 the have sub-folders from there, one sub-folder with
12 sub-folders in it.

Not a problem yet.
