I understand.

I don't use the IMAP server as an archive for this 3 reasons:

1. I don't have so much space on my email-account.
2. Archiving email-messages outside the email-client I can rely on 
Finder- / Spotlight- / HoudahSpot-search to find anything (including 
email-messages). I'm not saying that MailMate is bad on searching - I'm 
using it every day for the email-messages I still haven't archived yet.
3. Even after switching to MailMate I still like to believe that every 
email-client works faster and need less RAM when having less emails to 
deal with. I'm sure you've done and continuously do a lot of work to 
make MailMate fast and less RAM-hungry, but still. :-)

That's everything I was hopping for: an "*also*" (was never ever an 
"*instead*"!) and the hope! ;-)
