    Hi,
    A client has a 30Gb email archive, which he downloaded to his PC some time ago. Now he needs to get an email from that tar.gz file, but the files are not labeled by year / month / date / subject.

    How does one retreive an email in such a case? There is no option to re-upload the downloaded (and deleted) archive to the server, and even if there was, there isn's enough space with his current emails and email archives.

    Hello @SoftDux ,

    If you can extract in a Unix based OS, you can run a ls -lst and order it in a descending order of time. I believe many MUAs support Maildir format which means you can use plugins/addons to do the job. e.g.: addons.thunderbird.net/en-US/thunderbird/addon/importexporttools/

    In windows, an easy way to do this is to use a tool systoolsgroup.com/maildir/viewer/

    PS : I haven't used these tools personally. But known to work.
