Best email client for moderate to large email database (Evolution, thunderbird, kmail, Claws mail)
 
Hi, I am currently using evolution under Mint (XFCE) on a dell latitude E6500 laptop. I have tried Kmail, Thunderbird and actually giving Claws Mail a test run. I have to frequently consult a local copy of past emails (my work brings me to remote area without internet). Over time the email database has grown rather big (4 Gb) and it seem to be making evolution slow to start and search through message. Is there an alternative that would be able to manage a large numbrer of mails or a way to improve the speed?

Thanks.

I tested the above and finaly Claws is incredibly fast to search through all my mails compared with the other 3. Don't know if it's my install or the softwares themselves though.
