Archivemail moves old mail out of a mailbox (in Maildir, MH, or
mbox format, or via IMAP) and archives it in a compressed mbox-format
mailbox file. It is well suited to be run from cron for automatic
archiving of your old mail. Archivemail can also just delete old mail
so it is useful for cleaning up mailing list or spam mailboxes.
