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?

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).
