Why don't you use Maildir instead of mbox for local storage?  It scales
to way more messages, provided you have a decent file system...

maildir would be nice but it (may) causes some issues when I want to
archive the messages into CD (with mbox I can just save the whole file
and re-use it from the CD, I think). 

I use XFS as my home-dir so it's supposed to be better for large files
rather than reiserfs (been bitten so.. I"m not going there)
