Archive Items Manually
Keeping old messages hanging around is a lot like keeping your old clothes in the back of your closet--you don't need them anymore, but for some reason you can't bring yourself to throw them away.

But why keep old e-mail messages cluttering up your Inbox and folders? Why not simply archive them? That way, you can still get them if needed.

To archive items manually, click File, Archive. To archive all your folders, choose Archive All Folders According To Their AutoArchive Settings. Type a file name for the archived items to be transferred to, or click Browse to find an existing archive file. Enter a date in the Archive Items Older Than box. Any e-mail or item from before the specified date will be archived. Then, just click OK.
