Yep, a simple local IMAP server; if you create a "folder" and copy all the email into it that will give you an mbox-format file with just a very simple header that you can remove.

KMail will also allow you to copy the messages into your INBOX, which also has an MBOX format and probably lives in /var/mail .

Akonadi also has an archive agent, no idea what you could do with that (other than creating some kind of archive 8-) )
