Moving email mailbox contents to a thumb drive

How do I move a mailbox floder to a thumb drive. I was an officer in a local club and I want to give the new officer past club emails.

You would need to enable the account in a desktop email client like Outlook or Thunderbird, then back it up to the external drive using a backup utility.

I'm on an iMac.  I use Time Machine to backup my Mac Mail. Are you not doing that?
