I am getting old and forgetful. It suddenly occurred to me that I had once 
asked a similar question here, and as I have kept all messages from starting to 
use TB! I found it for you. See below, Thomas Fernandez answered and although 
based on an earlier TB! version his response should still be applicable, I 
would have thought.

What I do is I "archive" old messages to other folders. For example, I
name a subfolder "2016" and then move all messages from that year into
that subfolder. This keep each folder with a manageable size. (Make
sure you compact the folders in which the messages were stored

If you want to store those messages somewhere else, you create a dummy
account called "Archive". Under Account / Properties / Files &
Directories, you to an external drive or a drive in the cloud (nobody
uses tape or DVD any more). This way, you don't need to keep them on
your computer's hard disk.
