I use the "On my mac" folders (specifically folders under /Users/USERNAME/Library/Mail/) as the working archive as for my e-mail for the past 15 years. This directory is also backed-up on my NAS.
It is getting rather large and I'd like to move some older mail from my laptop to my NAS as I do not need to access it as regularly now.
Before I start moving 10s of GB from my laptop to the NAS in vain, is it possible to have something like the following?
/Users/USERNAME/Library/Mail/Mailboxes/archive_2012/* <-- on my laptop
/Users/USERNAME/Library/Mail/Mailboxes/symbolic_link_to_archive_2000/* <-- on the NAS
Can I simply move the archive_2000 folder to the NAS and point towards it on the laptop OS?
If not, is there some other way to do this?
thanks in advance.
