Simple way to archive mail in Mail.app Apps
Create a mailbox using the Mail app preference panel (e.g. Jan 2001), drag all your mail you want to archive for that month into the mailbox. Quit Mail and go to your home library and find the Mail folder, open it and remove your newly created mailbox containing all your archived mail. I would then store this on a removable disc if my CD RW was recognized. For now I just store it on the hard drive of another Mac on my LAN.

What about IMAP mailbox files?
Authored by: Maurizio on Nov 16, '01 01:45:23PM

The suggestion is a good one for users who are looking to archive Mail.app's POP mailbox files (*.mbox), but can this same method be used to archive Mail.app's "*.imapmbox" files from IMAP accounts?

I haven't been able to have Mail.app re-recognize a "*.imap.mbox" file that was removed from the "/library/mail/" directory and then restored. Nor can I simply open the removed/archived file with Mail.app.

Any suggestions?

Thanks,

m.
