Turn on AutoArchive
In a previous tip, you learned how to manually archive your old e-mails. But why do it the hard way? Simply turn on AutoArchive, and Outlook 2000 will do it for you!

Click Tools, Options, then select the Other tab. Click AutoArchive. Select the AutoArchive Every box to have AutoArchive run when you start Outlook. Then enter a number in the Days box to specify how often the archiving process will run. Type a filename in the Default Archive File box--this is the file to which your old items will be transferred. Click OK.

Now that you've turned on AutoArchive, you need to tweak the AutoArchive properties for each folder--we'll cover that in a later tip.
