Check this out. Have not tried it myself, though:

You might first use a search folder / filter to distribute mails to a
special maildir and/or mbox account. 
Also, keep in mind that evolution uses sqlite databases (named
folders.db, I think) to keep basic information about mails. So, you
might consider saving these database files as well if you need to
quickly do a search for specific mails at a later time!

Also, you might look at:
or do a google search for "mail archive linux"

Hope this helps,

Thanks Thomas...that is helpful.
