Archive mbox files

Built-in email viewer
The built-in browser has the familar 3-pane interface of every mail client.
There are 2 main formats: the internal database and - if you have a Filemaker license - a free and open Filemaker template. If you archive to the internal database you can export the complate or partial data to Evernote, Filemaker, PDF, mbox, Text (csv), or XML.
Each format has options to tailor the export to your needs. The screenshot shows the options for exporting to PDF.

You only have to use one date/age (archive everything older than 31-Dec-2013 or older than a year).
