comment How to use PGP to encrypt all your mails (even received)?
I understand the mail provider goal can't be met. However I don't expect all senders to send encrypted mails. I want to encrypt the mail after receiving. This helps in the scenario if the A/C was hacked all the contents would be encrypted. I can only decrypt them on my local client.

@daniel-beck thanks for the detailed response and with useful links. They were helpful? Do you know what kind of elevated permissions a application can acquire using password prompts? monitory key inputs, access all system files? Also do you know if mac app store scans your ~/Applications/ for installed apps.

comment Auto-archive IMAP mail folders on OS X
I have updated the question to explain better. Daniel, no mine doesnt. Even if yours did, does it do it incrementally or you have to merge the mboxes with the ones you have downloaded already?

comment Snow Leopard clean install on partition and resize later
Agree on the backup part. but note that the approach I did was non-destructive. Not that you shouldnt take a backup but just a observation that it is possible to do such stuff(non-destructive) with DL. It seems to have only a few limitations.
