With IMAP, you can run searches on the server as well (I'm assuming 
you're talking about a local search because you mention your client, not 
your server software). A good IMAP server could get you the search 
results quickly. And it can probably avoid searching the attachments; I 
think a lot of that 12 GB is attachments?
