First, sort your mail into sensible subfolder organization, if only by
year or month, etc.  Use server-side filtering to make this automatic. 
Second, make sure you actually *need* that many messages - most people
don't and should be deleting most of them.  Third, if you must
load/sort/search that volume of message, webmail is not for you - try
Thunderbird or just log into the server and learn how to use your IMAP
server directly.  For dovecot, doveadm has some powerful capabilities.
