I do it by month in .procmailrc:
So I get Recevied-Archive/2002-01, 2002-02, etc. If I can more-or-less
remember the time frame of the message I'm looking for, I don't need
to grep through them all.
If you have 10 years worth of messages in a few files, it shouldn't be
hard to split them into individual files on a web server and index
them using ht://Dig, or some equivalent.
