Having used Outlook express for years I changed about 9 months ago to MS Outlook because it would handle moore files, more effectively. I transferred a few emails across in my inbox ( approx 900 ) and set up the archiving facility, to limit the size of the inbox.
I set up a 3 month limit , after which emails should be archived, this has worked for recent additions, but not for any of the original files which were transferred over. So I still have 2006 and early 2007 emails in my inbox , and also items less than 3 months old, but items over 3 months created by Outlook software since the transfer of files have been archived. What is preventing the earlier files from being archived according to the date Is there anything I can do to clear them down.
