You send and receive 4 megabytes a day for twenty years?


And no one mentioned 640 Megs. If you truly need to index that much then
good luck!

Since I suspect you only really want a quick find on email from the past

I use mairix with gnus and its instant and I have about 4 years of
emails indexed.
