    I'm wanting a iOS type behavior where mail will only store so many emails before deleting the oldest and replacing with the new, while keeping the option to search the server for older messages.

    Because I would like to set up Mail for actually sending emails, but I don't want to waste disk space re archiving emails that are already on the server.

    If they're already on the server just delete them off your local machine.
