    On jobs I often create a dedicated folder on the lefthand side of the mail window, where I can store all related emails for that project.

    But I'm getting quite a few of these now.

    What I want to do is save these folders and their contents somewhere else ( either on my hard disc or on a CD ) to declutter mail. And added bonus ( not essential ) would be the ability to copy one or two back to mail should I need them at a later date.

    How can I do this?

    cheers:)

    Control/Right Click the Mailbox and select Archive Mailbox.

    This creates a .mbox file/folder which contains the emails and a few other files.

    You can import this .mbox folder back into Mail by File - Import Mailboxes.

    I believe that covers what you want to do.
