Mailman - to easy open archives and generate unsucribe mail/website 
org-mode - add email to my GTD inbox (similar exists for a bunch of 
other GTD tools)
mailmate - copy links to emails, copy subjects, etc.

...you'll notice I wrote 2 of these so maybe I'm biased :)

which is why mail mate's use of markdown is great.

If you are mainly a text email guy you just read the markdown - there is
no special formatting, lists looks like lists written in text etc.

Yes ? I have show html view too so I can see both text and html I send 
I know both will end up to be viewed by user dependent on their 
preference to
text or html.

That sounds like something you can do with osx text services.

Ever tried out 
His markdown services might help you out.

yes, but it’s a different one and supports way more parameters ;)

With my 1.000.000 messages it sometimes gets challenged and it does 
block the UI
but that’s why I try and use spotlight search for most things until 
Benny finds
a way to improve that situation.

It helps to tell search to just search in a specific mailbox - speed 
things up ;)

no, it has its own filtering system.

yes, you can continue to do that.

yeah, so I never seen a mail client that does good server side rule 
hence why I use imapfilter ;)
