    Question Is there a way to automatically move mail from one folder to another?
    Is there a way to periodically, automatically, move mail from one folder to another?

    For example, I'd like to move mail from one of my IMAP/Archives folders to my MyMac/Archive folder and I'd like this to happen without intervention.

    Can this be done?

    Specs:
    iMac 2010 27" QuadI7 OSX10.11, iMac 2008 OSX10.11, MBP Late2011OSX10.11 , iPad Air, iPhone 3GS
    The only way I know off the top of my head would be with a Rule in mail. I have many rules set up to move messages from one folder to another and even delete some and it's all done automatically. I have not worked much with IMAP so not sure but will give it a try later and see what I can some up with for a Rule in Mail.

    Maybe some other user has done that and can help before I get to it later.

    I'll try to be more specific.

    When I'm done with an email, I archive it.
    Because I have multiple email accounts, this results in emails in multiple Archive folders (one per account).

    I'd like to have these automatically all moved into one (on my Mac).
