[MlMt] Mail archive tools - best searching

Stability of MM aside, I'd recommend FoxTrot Professional from CTM
software. It has a very sophisticated search syntax, and will handle
virtually any type of file. I don't think it has a syntax specific to
email, but you might be able to overcome that with good enough queries
(like find "bob" 1 word away from "from" and "beer" one word away from
"subject"). There is a month trial so you can try it.
