Outlook 2007 provides several ways to configure and manage your data-archiving settings. For example, suppose that you want Outlook 2007 to run AutoArchive every day, but you want to be prompted before it starts. You can configure AutoArchive to do just that. In addition, you might want to delete old items after a specific date (say, after a message sits in the Inbox for six months). This section shows you how to configure AutoArchive to handle many of your archiving needs.
To set AutoArchive options, choose Tools, Options, click the Other tab, and then click Auto-Archive to open the AutoArchive dialog box. The following sections explain the options that you’ll find in the AutoArchive dialog box.
