Archiving Messages

Archiving compresses messages into files that are stored on your hard drive. You can archive messages manually or automatically using AutoArchive. This Outlook tool automates the task of archiving your messages (as well as files and folders) based on a period of time you set. For example, you could archive all the messages you sent in the last six months. Archived items are saved in the personal store (.pst) file format. This format compresses the message so it takes up less space. It also stores the file on your computer and not on the e-mail server.

Set Archive Options for Your Inbox

In Mail view, click Inbox.

Click the Tools menu, and then click Options.

Click the Other tab, and then click the AutoArchive button.

Specify the options you want for your Inbox.

Click OK, and then click OK again.
