I have had thunderbird fail as too many emails in inbox in a user that
did not expunge, and then multiple copies were saved, and this cycle
repeated itself to varyinging levels of success several times.
claws was able to handle the 50,000 + emails, and remove duplicates.

I have a mailbox with approximately 50,000 emails;
when I tried to age the emails with archivemail, archivemail or some part
of it couldn't quite cope with size/volume/some unknown aspect, and,
'crashed' on this mailbox
perhaps as a result of that, I now have some 50,000 email files
sequentaily date/time stamped, some, there is no way of sorting on file
date/time stamp (that I can see)
I think... that failed procedure might have also duplicated? triplicated?
quadrupled? mail volume...
the mail headers do have correct date/time
how can I copy say the last 7 days worth of emails from the files?
like, "if date in the header=last 7 days, copy this file from here to there"
