Archive issue

Hi,

I run Outlook 2007 connecting to Exchange 2003. I tried to archive old 
email, however the archive stopped without any error message. When check the 
..PST file, it only has the folder structures. All folders are empty. What is 
the problem?

Need help!

Thanks in advance!

Thank you very much! With the link you posted, I am able to find the problem. 
Our old emails were converted from Thunderbird, thus the modified date is 
defferent from the received date.

Thanks again!

move to archived folders works, archiving to same archived folders does not work
We are using Outlook 2000 with Exchange 2000. Most of our users work on Terminal Server. Their pst-files are stored on a directory on the file and print server. Some of these users can move mails from their mailbox to their archived folders, but cannot archive to it. They get the message that the pst file cannot be opened. However at that moment they can still browse in their archived folders, move mail to it and so on. For one user I created a new pst file, but the problem staid the same. Does anyone have experience with this? ...

Archive
Hi, I'm trying to archive some calendar items and have found the archive settings for the folder. When I run the archive process the items are not moved from the calendar and the folder size is not reduced. I'd appreciate it if someone could tell me how to set this up so that items prior to a point in time can be moved off so that the size of my calendar folder doesn't reach the size limit of my over zealous exchange administrator. Cheers, Darren. Check the Modified date on the items that aren't being archived as you think they should. That's the date Outlook uses to...

POP3 authentication issues
Hi, I have a Windows 2003 SBS server that is set up to be a POP3 server. I have a few issues with it: 1) For some reason I cannot use the regular user name. Instead I have to use the format username@company.local. For some older user accounts for which we have not changed the password, we can just use username as the username (jdoe vs. jdoe@company.local). 2) When using username@company.local, the login is very slow (well 10-15 seconds vs. instantaneous). Downloading e-mail is also very slow. I found the following article (http://support.microsoft.com/?kbid=318228), but I'm not sure if ...

Archival Data -- Managing over Time
I am developing a set of data that I will do some research on, and others as well. My plan is to keep the source data in one workbook in a very simple format, and not do any calculations or charts in that workbook. I'll do my charts in other workbooks, and will send the source data workbook to others when they request. The idea is to reduce corruption and accidental modifications to the source data over time. Is this a good plan? Any other comments about how to protect the accuracy and stability of the source data over time? I understand I can essentially make the source file read...

duplicate messages when opening archives / archive inbox emptied?
Outlook appears to be re-downloading all messages (700+) from my hotmail pop3 account. (again...) This only (?) appears to happen on the same days when I try and find an archived email in my inbox. The two times that it has happened today (it has never happened twice on one day before), I was working on a Word document. So I was not deleting emails at the time.

Archive not archiving
Help please. I am trying to archive email folders. Archive runs, creates an archive folder (and .pst file) but does nothing else. i.e no data is moved to the Archive folders. This is not a case of selected date - a lot of this info is 2 years old. No matter what date I select nothing is moved. Same if i try to archive calendar or other folders.

archiving auto archive
I have my sent items set to auto archive for mails older than 6 months. Today I want to archive the remaining files in sent items (less than 6 months old).

Outlook 2003 Security Issue
