Thanks, Antoine. That helps a lot, actually.

Now I just need an email client that displays archived-At or X-Archived-At. (Mail.app doesn't show that in long headers or when I export as .eml; I'll see about reporting this to Apple as a bug.)

If anyone has a mail client to recommend for this purpose, please email me offlist!
