If you use a courier setup then you can archive the mails with a maildrop script, just add a rule to /var/vmail/.mailfilter to store a copy of all emails to a separate directory before delivering them to the mailbox.

If you use dovecot then you can not store the emails to a folder directly as sive does not support that but you can forward them to a technical "archiving" address and also set flags in the mail header if you want to kep the original recipient address etc.
