    Is this not working for you?

    Mail, Preferences, right chevron, Rules, Add Rule, give it a name,
    If any of the conditions are met.
    Choose Account, and then make your selection.
    Perform the following action, Move Message
    to mailbox, make your selection.

    Are you trying to move specific messages? I'd recommend just backing up all your mail messages since they usually don't take up much space, but to set up a rule to move messages…

    Go to Mail > Preferences… click on the Rules tab, Add Rule, then specify what type of message you'd like to apply the rule to, and in the next box, choose what action to perform (Move Message and Mailbox [backup mailbox])
