On console I mostly use elm (which really can't be recommended because it lacks
features), but have you tried xfmail? I use it for two years now and have
no problem managing five traffic-intensive mailing lists such as bugtraq,
suse-security and so forth. Xfmail is part of the SuSE distro and comes with
rich features like easy filtering, full pgp support and more.

Just my two cents.
