i've always thought that it'd be really cool to push my (extensive) 
personal mail archives into a database and write some kind of front end 
to allow advanced queries (but this has never really got further than a 

if you've got an advanced email client (like the one that comes with 
macOSX) then one option would be to download the whole mbox and run an 
imap server from it. you then use the email sorting engine to filter 
all '[configuration]' emails into a single folder.

email archives are repositories of knowledge and automated analysis of 
email archives is something that seems like to grow in importance. i've 
always wondered whether analytic facilities could be added to james (or 
maybe they're already there, i just haven't look deep enough).
