this is a answer/question: A - you can save a local copy of the messages
you need [all or by directory] with an IMAP account. Q- I used to do it
on Gnome/Evolution, but it looks like the feature to "save a local copy"
is not implemented in Sylpheed?

I don't know if you are running your own mail server or using a free
provider, but gmail/gmx both provide these services at no cost. Gmail
is more reliable for me (gmx has a policy of account canceling after 3
months without log-in). If you have permanent DSL connection, that's
not a problem though.
