For what it's worth I've been using notmuch for several years now and
it's much superior to anything I've seen. I can find all kinds of emails
instantly and using my prefered text-editor (vim).

But yeah, the only problem is getting the mail in the right format in my
machine in the first place. But once I have it, it's blazingly fast to
deal with email.
