I hope I'm not misunderstanding your question here. GnuPG has nothing
to do with searching email databases, archives, etc., as it's just an
encryption/digital signature program. However, some email clients do
offer various built-in search functions. My email client, The Bat!,
has a pretty good search setup. I'm not sure if yours does or not, as
I don't use it.

There's also a nice email archive/search/etc. program that I use for
various purposes, called "Mailbag Assistant" from Fookes Software:

With Mailbag Assistant, you can access the email databases of several
different email clients, then search on any of several variables at
the same time. It can do a lot more than just search email databases
though, and I've found this program to be very useful for several
functions having to do with email databases.
