Along the lines of what Ted said about Fcc, I've always Bcc-ed
myself on every message I send to verify deliverability and
check/train my spam filter.

What search tool do you use?  mairix can handle the 6-digit
quantity of the git list fairly well.  The following finds all
threads with "sandals" in From/To/Cc:

	mairix -t a:sandals d:YYYYMMDD-YYYYMMDD

and dumps it to whatever Maildir/mbox/IMAP "mfolder" you've
configured.  (prefixes in public-inbox such as "a:", "d:" and
"s:" are stolen from mairix; though mairix ranges use "-" and
public-inbox uses ".." due to Xapian).


I've also heard good things about notmuch, but I archive old
mail to gzipped mboxrd right now[1], and that only supports
Maildir...  I learned to use Xapian by reading code in notmuch.



[1] Fwiw, I'm also working on an AGPL Perl5 storage+search CLI
    that scales to 7/8-digit mail collections.  It's not ready
    for prime-time, yet, but getting there...  (Assuming it
    doesn't set my SSD on fire, first :x)
