archiving in MS Outlook

  micaf 13:36 17 Dec 2007

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also items less than 3 months old, but items over 3 months created by Outlook software since the transfer of files have been archived.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.

any suggestions would be appreciated

click here for all instructions, but more importantly scroll down and find the link to the Backup Tool. This is by far the best way to backup Outlook
