Well, it's neither pretty, nor quick, nor resource-friendly, but a
temporary solution would be for you to download the full raw archive
and import that file into your favorite email program.
Netscape for linux allows me to treat this file as a folder, and I can
use its search tool to locate specifc messages within the archive.
Having such functionality built into a webpage interface would of
course be highly preferable though.
