    Hi --

    Can I archive my Attachments folder in each of my IMAP mailboxes? E.g.

    ~/Library/Mail/IMAP*/Sent Messages.imapmbox/Attachments and ~/Library/Mail/IMAP*/INBOX.imapmbox/Attachments


    Will I have any trouble viewing the actual messages?

    I ask because I have 16GB of Sent Attachments in one of my IMAP accounts and it makes using Finder's search more difficult, and it's a lot of extra bloat I don't need.


    Also, each of my IMAP accounts that come from my email server (postfix/dovecot setup on Debian Lenny) has a folder called "Apple Mail To Do.imapmbox" -- I don't use Mail's "To Do" feature, can I delete each of these mailboxes and how do I disable it in Mail's preferences? I have "Notes" disabled for each account, but I can't find an option for "To Do's"...

    Thanks!
