Since one of the main advantages of having an IMAP account is having your email on the server and simultaneously on your Mac, I'm having a hard time understanding why you need to export anything.
Why is your email no longer functioning.

As stated the mail in no longer functioning aka an Inactive mail account / deleted from the server.
So i would like to save some of these messages locally before removing the email account off the Mac.

Right, but it just creates and mbox file which doesnt show the actual Messages themselves. just the preference and plist files.
Something where I can view the messages outside of Mail and invidually (ie; QuickLook)

A mail file is a mail file. It's meant to be used with an eMail client, i.e., Mail or otherwise. If you want individual files for everyone of your emails, you'll have to make them by either saving them individually, .eml files, or converting them to individual PDFs.

The mbox file also has a file limit of 4.3 gb and my Archive folder is MUCH bigger than that.
It seems i can drag e-mail one by one out to a folder in Finder BUT i have 28000 of them. Has anyone fixed this?
