basically the personal folder is your mail store for current usage, and archiving mails is done in various ways like the MS article above explains

Ok, I understand that archiving stores emails, but where does it exactly store them.  Will they be stored under a personal folder or where will be the location of storage?  Also, once you archive the emails, how will you go about viewing them again?  Thanks.

you can archive them automatically as per the articles above, it stores them in a seperate personal folder [pst file] called archive.pst

if you want to view your mails in outlook you can choose file | open | point to your archive.pst file

or you can export your messages from the pst folder to several formats like txt, csv,access, etc........
