You can save all your outgoing mail sorted by month, and in a separate
mailbox for each correspondent:

 fcc-hook . "+/archive/`date +%Y%m`/%F"

saves mails to archive/month-sent/To user@host.

You can also save all your incoming mail in a similar way:

 save-hook .     "+/archive/%(%Y%m)/%F" 

saves mails to archive/month-received/user@host.

This makes it very easy to track down both incoming and outgoing mail,
and gives you a nice archive of all your correspondence.
