Question Is there a way to archive your emails with Apple Default Mail Client (like a PST file for Outlook)

Is there a way to archive your emails with Apple Mail Client?
My father being retired seems to spend most of his time on the computer with his email. Last time I checked, he most likely have about 10 years worth of emails and attachments. Some of this useful stuff, most of it is just crap. However all it is precious to him.

Lately he has been experiencing problems where some one his emails have been disappearing and repairing again. I am suspecting that there might be a stability problem with his local email cache due to the amount of email he has.

Under windows in MS Outlook, I can normally back every thing up to PST files. Is it possible to do the same thing with Apple default mail client?
