Our email system does a backup each day of all email sent and received, and stores it in a directory with the date stamp, so:

mail/2010-10-10/2010-10-10.zip
mail/2010-10-11/2010-10-11.zip

etc

I now have to provide all emails from jsmith@whatver.com from 2010-10-01 to 2010-12-31.  Of course, this is impossible to do until I unzip everything!

There has got to be a way to automate this!  I have tried Recoll, but I must be doing something wrong, every search returns nothing (even searching items I KNOW are there).

Appreciate any help!
