The question is, why would you want to do this? Two reasons I can think
of - which one fits you...?

1. To keep a record of all transactions you've ever performed on your
mailbox.

2. To permit multiple "offline" operations on your mailbox which get
sync'ed back to the main one whenever you get the opportunity.

In the first case you might be better off investigating a flexible mail
client (maybe mh, if you can stand it, or some derivative thereof) and
hacking the functionality yourself. In the second case, you're probably
better off looking for a mail client that supports some sensible kind of
offline operation. There are several of those.
