Glad my finding Thomas' message was useful to you.

What would be a highly useful feature to me would be to have a function where 
you command TB to make a new database mimicking the current ones structure, but 
with all folders showing an Archive and pre date identifier. 

So one would select an account, select a cut off month and year and tell it to 
archive, the result being a separate database created on a destination medium 
of user choice, containing only messages created or received pre whatever month 
and year. The database remaining within TB would then only contain messages 
created or received after the cut off date desired.
