hi am on outlook 2010, I have a rule to move emails to a folder. I setup auto archive to keep only a days worth then delete the rest but it does not run?

did I not do the archive right? I only want to keep 1 days worth of emails then autodelete the rest, how to I do that?

See Configuring AutoArchive settings | Slipstick Systems for the steps to configure autoarchive. If you configured the folder for 1 day and set autoarchive to run daily, it will delete mail as they age.

I right click on the folder went to properties\autoarchive\archive this folder using these settings\clean out itmes older than 1 days\permanently delete old items

in the folder I have emails from 6/15/12 to 6/17/12 they are 319 emails. it should have left a days worth of emails in there and move the rest to delete folder? anything else I need to do?

Did you enable autoarchive in File, Cleanup?

I just turned it on, it made a difference it went down from 300 to 194 emails but its still has mail from saturday 11.14am till sunday today 3.20pm. I guess that is right I figured it would be something like saturday 3.28pm or around that time to sunday 3:28pm or around that time. I wish I could control it by size fro example 1.5 megs max anything after that delete.

Re: rule to move emails to a folder then want to delete them from that folder

Archive can't do sizes (and i think it works on full days not partial days) but you could use a search folder and delete the mail yourself. The conditions would be received before today and size is greater than...

BTW, the correct path for autoarchive is file, options, advanced. Manual archive is in file, cleanup.
