8 Enigmail works great, if installed via usual extension mechanism. It's

21 TB3 brings archive support. I don't know if that is what you need, but
22 see for yourself:
25 I prefer having all mails stored on the server (used with IMAP) and
26 backing that up. Most users I know just forget to make backups/archives.
27 Of course if they need a lost mail - you're right - it's work for us :(
28 I think dovecot-imap has an automated archiving mechanism too...
30 Bye,
