Set AutoArchive Properties for a Folder
In a previous Outlook tip, you learned how to turn on AutoArchive to automatically store old Outlook 2000 items. But you're not ready to go yet--you still need to set the AutoArchive properties for each folder you want to be archived automatically.
Right-click the folder you want to AutoArchive, then select Properties. Click the AutoArchive tab, check the box next to Clean Out Items Older Than, and enter a number in months--this is how often archiving will run.
Next, you need to pick a file for the archived items to be stored in. Click Move Old Items To. Type a filename (if you've already got an archive file, click Browse to find it). Click Apply, then click OK.
