Linux With Linux on the desktop going from a slow crawl to verging on an explosion, many have toiled with the question: How do we make this happen faster? A well-known Austin-based Linux Advocate thinks he has the answer.

BTW: I'm in search for a mail program (or solution) in linux that treat mails as files and not as one big database file, and same for people (email addresses) files. (BeOS like) Any thoughts?


Don't all of them do exactly that?

No, they don't:

Evolution store it's mail in ~/.evolution/mail/local/inbox (as a database file)

If i'm not mistake so does thunderbird

kmail store's it in seperate files (like I want) using cryptyc filenames so I have to open the mail to see from who and what the subject is.

Would be nice to see like this:

sender | subject | date | to whom | filename

Anyone using BeOS (or derivates) knows what i'm talking about.

The others thing that would be nice is having people files.
