Email archiver

'Archmbox' parses regular BSD mailbox files and archives all messages older than a specified date. The date to identify if a message is old or not is specified with either a standard iso format date (yyy-mm-dd) or an offset in days. The program supports regular expression based archiving rules as well as recursion. Archmbox can also be used on a whole tree of mailboxes.
