Click Tools>Options>Other>AutoArchive and check the box labeled "Show archive
folder in folder list".

Brian,

I am on OL 2003 at my office,....question about autoarchiving;

- I have the archive settings set to show the 'show' arch folder,....I
assume you must first run autoarchive to see it. ?

- Before I archive anything, I want to be sure that when I search the
emails connected to a contact...that I will see archived items in the search
as well. i.e. searching inbox, or while in a contact window...clicking on
activities tab to view all email with that contact....will archived items
show there as well?

Thanks,
Cliff

The activities will be restricted to a single PST, I believe. It won't
include both your main folders and the Archive folders. Since I don't use
activities or journaling, don't consider this gospel, however.

Ok, it sounds like the answer is 'no'. Is there a way I can test it without
doing a full autoarchive? Is there a way that I can take an older email in
my inbox and manually archive just that email? If that is possible, then I
can test the search capabilities from within a contact window and also do a
general 'inbox' search.

Thks,
Cliff

Create a new PST and copy some of your folders to it so you have similar
folders in both PSTs. Test. When does, you can close the added PST.

Hi,

Take a look at the Outlook search-tool Lookeen. With this tool, you
can add system folders, multiple pst´s to the index and search for
them very quick. I think this could be a solution for your problem.

Lookeen can be tested under http://www.lookeen.net (14-Day-Trial-
Version)
