Read the comment immediately above the "Archive Mail" setting. Among
other things, it says this:

# Space-separated list of any combination of
# 1. email addresses to which mail should be forwarded,
# 2. directory names where you want mail to be stored,
# 3. file names (they must already exist!) to which mail will be appended
#    in "mbox" format suitable for most Unix mail systems.
