An archive feature would be welcomed I believe. I don't know the volume 
of e-mail that is stored, but it must be petabytes. And I surmise that 
applies to all users albeit personal, business and government.

E-mail is arguably the greatest source if historical record of all time. 
The value of an archive that can be indexed/searched by when, who, what, 
attachments and key words is significant. To have to delete a gigabyte 
of historical records for the sake of space on a local disk seems sort 
of odd in this day and age.

I would hasten to add, the ability to select the place to store the 
archived e-mail, whether on a second HDD, a USB drive, a DVD or the 
cloud could also serve as a backup.

If there is an interest we can develop the use cases to add to the 
consideration of the Thunderbird topology.
