I thought the concept of archiving was a unix-only thing anyway. I don't

Windows mailer that does this but I don't think Outlook nor
Netscape/Mozilla offer this).
Outlook, since at least Outlook 98, supports this with Exchange folders.

Personally I think it's annoying to have to go looking through a 
completely different folderspace for old messages, but it's there...

If Evo could read gzipped files, this could be accomplished by gzipping
archived mail and creating a vfolder with the contents of the active
folder plus those of the gzipped folder. Seems like it might be fairly
easily done at the back end; as always, the pain is getting the UI
right. =]
