'[OT] e-mail software manager'

Obviously after few years I have near a gigabyte of email at my Netscape
email directory, classified by some subjects, somehow, but I believe
even this new version of Netscape (that looks like to have few nasty
bugs that generate windows blue screens) can not manage well such amount
of text.

To minimize this problem, I am saving old directories into plain .TXT
files, and deleting it from Netscape.  I am doing it because everything
from the email still in ascii format, so sooner or later it could be
retrieved by some crazy indexer software, and searched as I can do with
Netscape's email function.

Is there any available software at the market that can manage emails
from plain txt files?  So I can finally allow Netscape to open its mail
section in less than 20 seconds?  :)

Wagner.

I want this as a semi-CD compatible application (I want to be able to
burn a set of CD's (say one a year, over time) - so I can back up stuff
off the HDD here, I too have nearly a Gig of e-mail, and it's TOO MUCH
on rotating media <G>

I've thought of just using Grep on a fast CD-Rom drive or something like
that.  It'd beat no search capability at all.

Hey Mark, if not apparent solution will appear, I was thinking to
produce a small code to convert the text files to data-base files. It
would be easy to generate fields as "sender", "date", "time", "subject",
"to", and so on.  A good data base can create indexes to speed up
searching and all. So, we just need to find out which data-base pgm is
pretty nice to use, fast, small, $cheap$, any suggestions? anyone?  I
also thought to write it to CD's, but there is no use in text files...
search is just horrible.  I guess one could sell those CD's by $5.00
shipping included, huh? a near Microchip lifetime of forum discussions,
including subjects as "How a PIC solved the Hubble problem" or "How to
make rain drops go upward using a PIC, two 33pF capacitors and a huuuuge
industrial blower"... and other pearls... like a subject I saw:
"Whatahell!@?" :)

I don't know if this is exactly what you are looking for, but you might
want to take a look at Hypermail at http://www.landfield.com/hypermail/

At least the price is right ... it's free :-)

A thought, don't know if it would be easy.  If you can convert the file
into windows help file format, windows can create an index file for you.
Help files are also compressed, another advantage.

Now *that* is a good idea. I have a windows help file generator... will
try just to see what happens.  Probably will be some hard work to create
the classification, but...
