Enigmail works great, if installed via usual extension mechanism. It's
just, that the user (or you for them) has to do it once...

TB3 brings archive support. I don't know if that is what you need, but
see for yourself:
I prefer having all mails stored on the server (used with IMAP) and
backing that up. Most users I know just forget to make backups/archives.
Of course if they need a lost mail - you're right - it's work for us
I think dovecot-imap has an automated archiving mechanism too...
