I'm not sure what you mean by full text searching. Claws-mail has
several search options. No direct regex support, though. In addition,
you can use mbox or maildir, so your emails are plain vanilla text
files, which you can search with all the Unix tools.

Excellent support for mail threads. You can display threads together,
and set whether they are sorted according to the latest email in the
thread or the oldest according to your main sorting criterion.

I don't think there is any support for key binding. However, you can
use an external editor for emails, so that's not a big deal for me.

Oh, good luck there. :-)

One thing Claws-mail does you may not like. It will not compose HTML
email, which is fine with me. It will display it using a quirky
browser. You can read and reply to the plain text portion of an email.

Here are some reviews and notes for you:

and effects, against unreasonable searches and seizures, shall not be
violated, and no Warrants shall issue, but upon probable cause,
