I created a new folder called "~Archive". (As the folders are sorted
alphabetically the leading tilde '~' makes this folder the last folder
in my folder list.) Then I created subfolders inside ~Archive for all
the messages I wanted to get out of my active folders and moved the old
messages to these subfolders.
If you don't want to keep the messages in KMail's realm then you can
select the messages you want to archive and then simply save them. They
will be saved in one file (in the so called mbox format). After saving
the messages you can delete them. If you want to access them later you
simply copy the "archive" file to ~/Mail, restart KMail and can now
access the archived messages.
