I've got folders with thousands of messages going back further than
that, none of them are anywhere near that size.

Of course, if you have messages with files attached, that swells things
up a lot.

My experience says that it's rather dire (out of trying over a dozen
different clients, over the years).  Filtering is the slowest I've seen
on any mail client.  I gave up filtering in Evolution, and just manually
dump messages into folders once a week, or so (use the search box to
find all the fedora-list messages, drag and drop them out of inbox to a
fedora folder).  And it's hopeless at doing two things at once, such as
loading up the next message while your reply is being sent.

[tim localhost ~]$ uname -r

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