If you investigate further, please post your results on the mairix
mailing list.

FWIW, nnmairix can handle several mairix installations. So what you
could do is set up several different mairixrc configuration files which
index different parts of your mail (with a size that mairix can still
handle). You can then set up a nnmairix server for each configuration
file with "mairix -f <configfile>" for nnmairix-mairix-command.

This is just a workaraound and has some disadvantages; for example, you
can only query one of the mairix servers at a time, so you will roughly
have to know which mairix index could get you what you're looking for.

Well yes, measured in Euros. But otherwise, I'd say that definitely is a
lot of mail. :-)
