[Sorry for cross-post to several newsgroups.]
I would like to database e-mails from a mailing list.
(To date I already have around 30,000 e-mails)
What I would like to do is to have WWW-browsers as the
front end. Users should be able to search the database
based on "From:", "Subject:", and the contents.

I am looking for the database program to do that in
either perl, icon, python, C, or whatever.
Should I use WAIS instead ? (I thought WAIS cannot handle
fielded text. Is there a trick to do this ?)
An automatic mechanism to add new mails should be available.

Does such beast exist?
Reply through e-mail is preffered. Will sumarize if needed.
