When trying to archive email in Outlook using the AutoArchive function, it sems to go through the process and then spits out this error:
Archive skips store due to error.  Failed to open source store.

I can manually archive each folder successfully. Any ideas?

I had the same problem in the past with archive and that's how I solved it:

When you use AutoArchive, it archives items based on the modified date, not the received date. Copying and Importing will often change the last modified date, resulting in unexpected results when you attempt to archive items.

To confirm the modified dates are the problem when archive fails, add the Modified Date field to your view, Right click on the field names in the folder and choose Field Chooser. Select Date/Time fields from the dropdown and drag Modified to the row of field names. If you're using Outlook 2003 with the default multiple row list view, choose Custom and add Modified field from the Fields button.
