That would be my first reaction, too.  But I suspect there are a lot
of different possible requirements for this kind of storage, and if
you really want to archive everything, keeping it out of your normal
mailboxes would be more efficient and less prone to losing archives
you wanted to keep.  

Most MTAs can be configured to save all mail on the way through, and
I've known people to use procmail to do similar things.  Depends on
why you want the archive.
