I'd like to echo the opinion that IMAP is a big help in getting to your
mail in whatever way is convenient at the time.
Also, the Maildir mailbox
format has all the advantages of the mh mailbox format (starting with
separate files per message), plus more (no locking). And it's supported
by more clients -- it's not just for qmail anymore. Check it out.
(I wrote an overview of
mailbox formats last month.)
