If you are reading mail on a mail server then shouldn't the server
archive the mail and not the user?

For instance, this is what I wrote for lrcressy.com:

### transport/30_exim4-config_mail_archive

# This transport is used to deliver an archive of all mail
# to /var/log/mail-archive.
# logrotate should be configured to rotate this log on a weekly basis
# for our small operation.
  driver = appendfile
  return_path_add = true
  envelope_to_add = true
  delivery_date_add = true
  group = mail
  mode = 0660
  # format of $tod_log is "1995-10-12 15:32:29"
  # file = /var/log/mail-archive/${substr_0_10:$tod_log}
  file =

This makes a new archive file every day with the following file name:
