How globally change "Do not archive items in this folder" to the default setting in Outlook 2003

Hi-

All of my numerous Outlook folders are set to "Do not archive items in this folder".
I want all of the folders configured to instead use the default setting so that I can then go in and change a few folders back to "Do not archive items in this folder"

I want to "Archive all folders according to their archive settings" and I don't want to have to manually reset the NUMEROUS folders one at a time to use the default setting.

Using "Include items with 'Do not archive' checked" will not work for me as I have folders that I truly do NOT want to archive (and I don't want to have to copy/move them around manually either).

Hoping someone can save me a lot of time...

You may want to set autoarchive and see what you get going to properties of each folder
