Er. Silly question... why don't you have multiple accounts for email, if
you have your own domain? eg, I have kernel at fop.ns.ca for lkml, nslug
for nslug mail, several personal accounts, and a webrequest account that I
use for dummy aliases for all the web signups. If that doesn't work for
you... why not use procmail, or Maildir?
Having 10K messages in a mailbox is just asking for corruption and
problems, to my mind. Although I have to say Pine with a 30 meg, ~8000
message mail spool (lkml) was quite usable on my PA-Risc machine,
which is a 100MHz CPU with 256 meg of memory...
