I can't get Outlook Autoarchive to work.

Copper Contributor
  • I'm hoping to use Outlook Autoarchive as a way of managing my Outlook inbox but I can't get it to work. What I have done so far:
    • Created a .pst file on my hard drive.
      Set the autoarchive settings as follows:
      Run archIve every day.
      Prompt before archive runs.
      Delete expired Items - NOT CHECKED.
      Archive or delete old items
      Show archive folder in folder list.
      Clean out items older than 18 months.
      Move old items to (Address of .pst file.)
      Permanently delete items - NOT CHECKED.
      Apply settings to all folders now.

    When I am prompted to run the autoarchive I click "yes" but no email is moved from my inbox and no email appears in my .pst file. What am i doing wrong? I have changed the settings on the trash folder to pemanently delete email.

    I'm running Windows 10 Home 64 bit and have Outlook 2010.

    Any help would be great!
