in thread recommended storage format for email messages?

Sounds like you just need to generate an index, then, with the starting line of each of the messages. If you kept it separate, then normal mbox-reading programs could use it, and you'd have your alternate way of skipping to messages.

    I think many mail clients already do this in fact. If there is one that is likely to be used in your install, see if you can use/duplicate it's index file. (I think every client has it's own system, if they have one at all.)

[marto]: Sane Dots, chapter 13: ITIL never work :P
[marto]: sorry, bad pun of it'll :P
[Corion]: :-D
[Corion]: I think that ITIL is mostly to prevent people from doing harm to a system that basically runs unattended :)
[Corion]: Maybe you could reduce ITIL to a computer network, a man and a dog. The network runs the computations. The man is there to feed the dog. The dog is there to prevent the man from accessing the computers.
[marto]: from experience of this side of the fence, it's all about proving to people that you are ITIL compliant, then the client ignores logical processes anyway :P
[marto]: when you work on the outside, for a client, you can make them aware of the stupids, but they don' t always listen :/
