    Mac Mail filling up?
    I have over 10,000 emails in Mail in various folders. Is there a limit to how many I can store / keep? And is there a way to "move" them to an external HD and clean up Mail? I have Time Machine running on an external HD so I know they are being backed up there.

    Specs:
    2.8 GHz MacBook Pro 10.11, 8 GB mem, iPhone 6+
    There are several applications out there that can do this though I have never tried them. I think some of them essentially create a searchable database. Here's one example.

    You can also perform an archive from within Mail

    Specs:

    And there's also this: https://itunes.apple.com/ca/app/emai...07821589?mt=12

    Pricey, but wait till its on sale. Works well.
