Schema for DB of email headers

I would like to build a DB for email headers. I have the header data in the following format, as a delimited row:

From: field
Subject: header
Count of To: fields (n)
1 To: field
2 To: field
n To: field
Count of Attachments (m)
1 attachment name
2 attachment name
m attachment name

I am struggling to come up with a schema for this dataset. The 'To:' fields will vary in number as will the number of 'attachment names'

I would like to be able to find conversations on given email addresses.

The dataset is large and so the schema must have good scalable indexing. So I need to avoid to much 'text' searching.

Any ideas please? Thanks
