I am a huge fan of the latest version of Eudora Pro. Right now I have 
practically _all_ email messages related to Zope in my mailfolders since I 
joined the Zope list (about 10.000 messages) and I can search them anyway I 

Eudora Pro 4.2's new search interface lets me specify what folders to

a host of other criteria, using full text search of regular expressions. It 
is easily more powerful than any only service.
