It is not a matter of fixed disk space.  I run 480 GB SSDs in each of

with roughly one-half of each SSD set for Ubuntu and the other half 
Windows.  Have software installed so I can read and write across the

I guess you could create a Search folder matching the messages you want
to archive then save them all in an mbox file and delete them. However
it's worth pointing out that Evolution is first and foremost an IMAP
client where the user keeps the bulk of his mail on a server. Issues of
local backup and archiving are not a priority.
