    I love Apple Mail, but it simply can't handle the bulk of mail I have/receive/need readily available. I thought it was just the number of accounts I was using, but on my new machine I currently only have my personal one and it is DREADFULLY slow (I can't even delete messages in bulk, I have to break them up by scores; which may not seem that big a deal until you're deleting a sent box with 40,000 messages in it). Any suggestions for a Pro grade replacement? Something that can handle multiple accounts, moving large amounts of messages at once, bulk forwards, mail lists, etc.? Freeware preferred but shareware or payware is fine.

    Oh, you want a GUI? Try PostBox, although tbh I'm not sure how any mail client is going to handle that many messages.

    Heh. Pine would handle mail better, but I'd go crazy using it with this volume of email...

    Postbox looks interesting; anyone have any experience with it?
