Yes. I like your idea of automatically storing mailing list messages in
a separate physical folder. I think we should do that (per default - of
course that should be configurable). That would solve this issue of
excessively large folders.
I don't think many people would able to read/write more than 20000-50000
emails per year. That would be an email every 2 minutes, 8 hours a day,
every work day, all the time. I think 10k per year are realistic. Just
to keep things in perspective.
We're getting a bit off-track, though :).
