      Hi Lotta: I'll recommend Thunderbird (been using it for about four
      years). I stopped updating at version 3.17 when Firefox +T'bird started
      bumping a major version every couple of weeks (or at least it seems that
      fast) just because I didn't want the hassle of wrestling with different
      versions of extensions.

      Most of what you want seems to be present in Thunderbird, including
      threading and the ability to set labels (ie. color the emails in list
      view) using filters or manually. It doesn't keep individual emails in
      separate files but all emails in a given folder are kept in a single
      file and when desired can be processed using any text editor (ie. Notetab).

      FWIW - when I used to use Outlook Express and before GMail came out I
      kept large archive ..DBX files to allow retrieval of old messages. I now
      use GMail and auto forward all received email to my POP3 ISP account,
      keeping only emails I know I'll need again and use GMail search otherwise.
