At this time archmbox supports mbox and mbx mailbox formats.
Four different modes are available:
- list mode, which is useful to list all selected messages before archmbox performs the real operations (archiving or deleting)
- kill mode, if messages should be deleted from the mailbox(es) rather than archived
- archive mode, to archive the selected messages in a different mailbox
- copy mode, to copy the selected messages from the source mailbox
All archived messages are stored in a new mailbox with the same name of the original one plus .archived as extension (this is the default, but can be changed); the archive mailbox can be saved in gz or bz2 compressed format as well.
Archmbox was successfully tested on the following platforms:
- MacOS X
- Sun Solaris
