Archiving Mail (this text is from the Gmail help page)
Archiving lets you tidy up your inbox by moving messages out of your inbox while retaining other labels you may have added, so you don't have to delete anything. It's like moving something into a filing cabinet for safekeeping, rather than putting it in the trash can. Any message you've archived can be found by clicking on "All Mail" on the left side of your Gmail page. You can also find a message you've archived by clicking on any other labels you've applied to it, or by searching for it.
Note: When someone responds to a message you've archived, the conversation containing that message will reappear in your inbox.
