Group Policy for auto-archive

Posted on 2007-07-30

I have a Group Policy setting to auto-archive email and calendar items in Outlook.  I want to change this setting to only auto-archive email.  Does anyone know where the auto-archive Group Policy setting is in AD?

    Should be found under "\User Configuration\Administrative Templates\Microsoft Office Outlook 2003\Tools\Options\Other\AutoArchive" in the appropriate GPO.

    This may be of some help:

    According to that link, it's in \User Configuration\Administrative Templates\Microsoft Office Outlook 2003\Tools | Options\Other\AutoArchive.  You first have to add the template from the Outlook11.adm file in the Office Resource Kit, but if your AutoArchive settings are already controlled by Group Policy, you must have already done that.

    While these comments are probably correct, there does not seem to be a way to only archive email and not calendar.  My company has accepted this and this question is no longer relevant.
