And check the box that says “Include items with “Do Not AutoArchive” checked”.

Then click the browse button and browse to your my documents folder and choose the “old emails” folder or create it if it doesn’t already exist.

And be sure to enter a file name such as “archived emails before ‘the date you choose above’

Most archives take 10-20 minutes. The progress will be seen at the bottom of your outlook window.

The folders will appear on left in outlook below your current mailbox folders in the same organized fashion as you had them in … you may right click and ‘close’ any archive folder when you are done with it.
