Outlook – Archive function missing from Outlook 2010 cleanup


I'm trying to do a manual archive in Outlook 2010 and internet instructions say to select Cleanup > Cleanup Folder > Archive; however there is no Archive function listed in the Cleanup Folder.

Also, when I right-click on an Outlook folder, select cleanup folder, settings, the icon under Conservation cleanup has an X next to it, indicating it is deselected (?)

Best Answer

if your server admin has set your exchange to auto archive you will no longer have access to the outlook auto archive.

If you right click any email & see Assign Policy your admin has removed your control of the archive function
