I do, but I like to keep at least a full month's mail in the
current folder. In fact, one of the main reasons I still use rmail
is that I prefer to use labels to organise mail, rather than
folders. 

My current RMAIL file holds 1.5 months of mail and is 35Mb. It'll
probably get twice as large before I archive again. That's not a
big problem for emacs, but it is the only large file I routinely
load.
