Archiving Emails Into Folders


Outlook version
Outlook 2010 32 bit
Email Account
Exchange Server
I have about four years of emails in my personal folder with about 100 individual folders and sub-folders. I have been manually moving my deleted and sent items to the archive folders that I created to save room, but I am really getting full again. I am wondering if I set up my Outlook to auto-archive emails over six months old, will it create the folders and sub-folders in the archive file? I need to keep them separated for future reference and am terrified to loose the categorization. Any advise you can offer would be great and so appreciated.
