I use swish++, but mairix and namazu are also good choices.

MH-E handles these search engines out of the box. See
http://mh-e.sourceforge.net/manual/html/Searching.html#Searching

On my laptop, swish++ indexes my "latest" 45,000 messages for 570 MB
in a couple of minutes so I do it a couple of times a day.
