If you are using maildir, you have the timestamp in the filename, and you can easily sort a message into folders from there. You can also, considering the size of the mail isn't in the multi terabyte range, just use filtering to do this for you (filtering of tour choice, I'd guess most any filtering could handle it).

Here for a start

ls | while read F; do echo $F; T=$(echo $F | cut -c 1-10); D=$(date 
--date="@$T" "+../../.Archive.%Y-%m/cur"); echo $D; done

The file is in $F; the target directory is in $D; in front of the last 
semicolon you add

mkdir -p $D; mv $F $D
