[Orgmode] Mail files in org

Is it possible to structure a large collection of emails in an org file ? Are 
there any specific tools for doing this ?

I have used pine for many years but the business of categorizing sensibly into 
folders the hundreds of mails which 
come each week is out of hand. Googlemail is offering a single file of emails, 
with (multiple) `tabs' replacing
the functionality of folders. This seems like a great step forward, but I don't 
like GUIs, and I'm not happy that on 
googlemail it seems not to be possible to download an email to disk with header 
information. (And I don't want all
my emails permanently on someone else's server.)

Maybe this has been thought of already, but I can't see it anywhere. I've never 
used mail under emacs (though I've used
emacs for about 12 years). 

What I have in mind is a single text file containing (say) one year's 10^5 
emails. I could go through attaching tabs, 
TODO notes, draft replies, rude remarks, tags, ... able to open a specific 
category ...

If I'm reinventing the wheel, please don't be too harsh.
