So this is the kind of setup I want: I setup all my emails to get downloaded to my Mac using POP3 into Thunderbird or OS X Mail. But they only get downloaded manually at the end of the day when and if I want. The emails get deleted from the cloud. During the day I get to access my emails like normal on my iPhone with push enabled and all. Instead of having years of emails on my Mac, I archive emails that are 6 months or a year old (some set value), once a year or whenever I want, to an external hard drive encrypted in a Truecrypt volume or whatever. So is this possible? If so how?
