Hi Chris:
So you make a "new folder" in the section under "On My Mac"? How do you "move all the mail" from that year? 

Cheers,
Linda

But after the last Disk Utility (which RE-named about 30 job folders, and gave them names with about 13 numbers-which I restored manually), my Mail wouldn't open at all, it said "Let's               set up Apple Mail!" (gasp).

The tech told me how to do that, I didn't read that in the knowledgebase (it only discusses how to totally erase the entire Trash folder, without selecting specific emails).

So I should be saving them (errrrr. . . moving them) in the "On My Mac" area - one at a time? Sheesh! Time for a drink.
