Emanuel,

You might look into MH-E.  It's an Emacs front end to the nmh mail
package.  Nmh, itself based on the old mh package, stores each email
as a single file.  It can organize messages into various folders.
I've never run into a size limit on either the size of the message, or
the number of messages per folder.  If memory serves, which it may
not, MH-E is hosted on SourceForge, and nmh is on Savannah.

I've used mh/nmh/MH-E/Claws-Mail for years (about 20, now that I think
about it -- where does the time go?) and I've been quite satisfied
with it.  Give it a try, you might like it.
