Use a "one file per message" for your archive (e.g. nnml).

The maximum buffer size is limited by the maximum lisp integer which
depends on Emacs flavor, version and architecture (i586 vs. x86_64).
Searching in Google for "most-positive-fixnum" should give you some

For the future:

,----[ (info "(gnus)Archived Messages") ]
| `gnus-gcc-externalize-attachments'
|      If `nil', attach files as normal parts in Gcc copies; if a regexp
|      and matches the Gcc group name, attach files as external parts; if
|      it is `all', attach local files as external parts; if it is other
|      non-`nil', the behavior is the same as `all', but it may be
|      changed in the future.

For old mail:

,----[ (info "(gnus)Using MIME") ]
| `C-o (Article)'
|      Prompt for a file name, then save the MIME object and strip it from
|      the article.[...]  The stripped MIME object will be referred via the
|      message/external-body MIME type.
|      (`gnus-mime-save-part-and-strip').

Bye, Reiner.
