My MacBookAir hard drive is FULL and I need to empty it.

This is mostly due to
1-My enormous Gmail size (imported as IMAP containing work emails and attachments back to 2008)
2-My recently imported wedding photos

I need you to
1-Archive or store my OLD GMAILS so they are somehow accessible but do not take all my hard drive space (compressed or on an external hard drive or not imported into my Mac, ie. stored in GMail only are all acceptable solutions)
2-Help me move all my PHOTOS to an external hard drive or my other MacBook (bigger hard drive), still connecting to my iPhoto (in either Air or bigger Mac)
3- Connect a hard drive with all my MUSIC to iTunes (Air or Mac), plus import a few tunes (really small recent additions) from iPhone and Macs

I will pay for a simple elegant solution that will solve my troubles all at once, and that I can continue using with my iPhone, MacBookAir and home-based Mac. I may consider buying a Time Capsule if you recommend so.

Please, drop a message and explain how you are planning to solve the above.
Alternatively, I am happy to pay by the hour at around $30/hr, I estimated it should take ~4hours tops, but happy to discuss.

Drop me a note! Thanks

Same thing with iPhoto. With your Gmail, if you can access everything from online, you don't need to have it downloaded in your system... just need to delete the account from Mail. Hope this helps!
I would make an offer, but I live in Brisbane, a little too far lol... I have a similar setup, a SSD for my system and a second drive for my files. Its fairly simple... move your music & photo files to an external HD or Time Capsule, Open itunes, in the preferences > advanced you have to unselect copy files to itunes media folder and keep itunes media folder organised. Delete your songs from itunes, and reimport your music from your external drive.
