    Hi Everyone,

    I have a few mailboxes full of old messages in Mail (v.5.1) that I want to archive, but somehow it does not seem possible. I have read this article, in which clear instructions are given for archiving mailboxes in Lion, but on my computer the options to archive are nowhere to be found (under the Mailbox menu or anywhere else - please see attachment)! What is going on?

    Thanks in advance for any advice. ;)

    It would seem the naming convention simply changed slightly. Use Export Mailboxes... in that menu instead.
