I have a Kerio Connect server running on Mac OS X Server v10.6.

An end user has 40,000+ messages in her INBOX, and accessing them from Mail.app (OS X 10.9) takes a considerably long time to do. We would like to create separate folders for each year, and move her INBOX messages older than 2014 into those folders.

I just wanted to clarify the best approach. here is what I am planning to do (really just a sanity check)

1. Stop the Kerio service (is this really necessary?)
2. Exit Mail.app on the user's Mac
3. from a terminal command, navigate to the end user's INBOX directory on the server (requires root privileges, I realize) and type:

find . -type f -newermt "2009-01-01" ! -newermt "2009-12-31" -exec mv {} /usr/local/kerio/mailserver/store/mail/domain.com/user/ArchivedMail/2009 \;
find . -type f -newermt "2010-01-01" ! -newermt "2010-12-31" -exec mv {} /usr/local/kerio/mailserver/store/mail/domain.com/user/ArchivedMail/2010 \;

(etc etc)

4. Start Kerio service
5. Reindex the users mailbox
6. open Mail.app on the end user's machine

Is this plan of sound mind and body?
