So is there a mail client that

stores the messages instead of one big pst file
as single messages?

No.

The reason is because such would be too slow for today's users. All current email stores such in a single file for speed. I can't guess what you know about computers and programming so it would be easy for a new to computer programmer to try to put each email in it's own file. That's one way to learn.

You can save each email to a file if you wish but again it's unclear why that would be done.
