The last time claws was mentioned on the list, I decided to try it. 
Besides being very slow in handling large folders, it crashed on me
several times.  I have many large mail folders with over 60,000 messages
that thunderbird handles just fine.  I am able to do server side
searches with no problem on the large folders.  I've never found another
mail client that reasonably handles this and it's reasonably fast too. 
No, I don't keep local indexes for those folders.
