The only problem I have with automatically moving old email to an archive 
folder is that it having all those messages in Kmail really slows it down. 
It's true this is far worse in KDE 3.5 than in KDE4, but versions of KDE4 PIM
that came out after Opensuse 11.2 are, IMHO, too crippled to use. I'd rather 
have a slower program than give up threading, proper distribution lists, etc.

I suppose I could drag the folders to somewhere else, but then I couldn't look 
through them easily.
