Thanks everyone for suggestions. I was able to split huge Mbox file

Glad it worked out for you. It was slow because gvim had to read the
entire file into virtual memory in order to work on it. An inline filter
would have been much faster (sed, awk, perl, ...).

Perhaps it would be great if you guys make something like "Mbox
reaching limit" notification. This will help lot of users... 32 bit
machines. As soon as we see this notification, we can move mails to
different folders from within Evo.

Not only with 32-bit machines. AFAIK the 2GB limitation also applies
even with 64-bit versions of Evo.
