    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.

    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
