I had setup a few folders for autoarchiving, but whern I start the autoarchive function, I see a few archive folders, but no messages are move to the archive.

Any idea, how to get these folders working?

If you have just moved the messages to the new folders, the message's "date" will not be old enough to auto-archive.

You can check and test this by changing the date for archiving the old items to older than 1 or 2 days. After it works, resaet to what you want the date to be.

Yes, you seem to be right, I set the time period to three weeks and it works. What I have done is about four weeks ago, I recreated my exchange server by exporting and reimporting my offline files, so I moved messages around. So, it seems to be, that the auto-archive function do not regard the date, I received the message, but the date of last change or something.

Thanks for the idea.
