Click the '+' in the bottom left corner of the main Mail window. Choose New Mailbox, then choose a location ("On My Mac" to store the messages on your machine only, or choose an e-mail account to store them online). The new mailbox shows up in the list on the left side of the Mail window. Drag any messages you want into that mailbox.
MacJack & Thomas, Thanks for the replies but I don't understand them. Can you rephrase it for my simple mind? I am getting hung up on terms like "On my Mac" and "Off his Mac" what do they mean? I want to keep my messages somewhere so that if I login to my wife's macbook, they will all be there too. (I have MobileMe and do sync my mail accounts). If that makes a difference. Thanks again.
Open Mail, at the bottom lefthand corner of the lefthand window click the + sign, select new mailbox, a dialog will open for you to pick a location and a name for the new mailbox, name it as you like and do not locate it in "on my mac" because it's on your mac not the server. Look for your MobileMe account and locate it there.
Or go to the website and do it there.
