Windows live mail doesn't have personal folders, offline folder files etc. But, it does cache the incoming mail onto your harddrive. If you look into (i believe its, and depending on settings "C:\users\username
\local settings\application data\microsoft\windows live mail" you will see a top folder named after the IMAP/pop3 account and a folder called 'storage folders'. Once in this folder there should be other folders named after the server folder(s), containing .eml or .dbx files. Each one of these files contain message data etc.
-Depending on what you want to do with the local EML's, there could be a hundred different ways to backup the files, segregate, re-index etc. How come you want to have a personal folders, like in Outlook? Is it so you can move them from the server, to local storage (to save space on the server)? I believe if you move a message from the WLM (IMAP) account, and put it into your a storage folders (via the WLM client) it should save those files even thereafter...since it's in the storage folder. Test it out and get back to me.
