Help me not get fired, Metafilter!

Some really horrible stuff was going down at work. I took absolutely no part in it, and even acknowledged that it may not be legal. I did this all over email, and even received responses back acknowledging this. I was explicitly threatened that if i wasn’t going to be a part of it, then i was to “forget about it or lose your job”.
So recently, they all got busted. And like a bunch of cowards, they all blamed it on me. And because I’m the low girl on the totem pole, it looks like I might have been the one doing all this stuff (without ANY proof). But I have proof!

I’m very glad that metafilter taught me to “document, document, document!” when something shitty was going down at work.
So my problem is that I am going to have to go through about 10,000-12,000 (personal, not from my work address) emails from the last year to prove this. I am going in front of a “panel” at work, and it would be great if I was able to prove that I was not part of this mess. I want to show that the only way these people could have all ended up blaming me is because they actively conspired against me. I don’t want to “search” for keywords. I want to go through every individual email. EVERY SINGLE ONE. This is important to me.
What is the best email client for going though everything? I have all Apple stuff. I’d like to chill on my couch and go through everything on my iPad. But if memory is an issue, I can use my macbook pro, even my mac mini(at my desk).
I’d like to be able to download everything from the (imap) server, and then either print out stuff (probably necessary for the “panel”)or organize the stuff into separate folders about each issue, or something similar. So thats where I am. Kinda confused about what would make this Herculean task less hard.
I have always used Apple Mail, but it has at times been buggy. Also, I could go do this right now, but what stops me is looking at the setup, and realizing that I hate Apple Mail.
Can anybody help me keep my job?
