Outlook 2007 archiving

I want to archive a large Mailbox pst file (about 12 GB). My question is, if the option archive everthing before eg. 2008 uses the creation date of the mails, or when it was last "touched". A collegue of mine ment it is the latter way.

Your colleague is right, as far as I know. The "last accessed" time stamp is used instead of the creation or received date.

But for archiving have a look on MailStore: www.mailstore.com
There's also a free version available and commercial use is allowed.

Your collegue is correct, It uses the last modified date of the emails.  E.g. if a user opens an email and removes an attachment then saves the email it will be classed as modified even though they may have recieved it a year ago.

Thanks for your fast reply.
I tried the homeversion, but i noticed that it cannot store files into a PST file. Do you know another tool or a way to change the way outlook uses the time stamp filter.

You could use ExMerge (http://www.microsoft.com/downloads/details.aspx?familyid=429163ec-dcdf-47dc-96da-1c12d67327d5&displaylang=en)

But you have to split the export, because ExMerge create only PST files that are limited to a size of 2 GB! Using ExMerge you can define which emails should be archived from a specific mailbox using their received and creation date. The "last accessed" time stamp is ignored.

ExMerge would be great. But as far as I know it only extracts the mails form the source without deleting them. Is that right? Can you configure Exmerge that way so it would move the files from the source to the destination.

There's an option 'Archive data to target store'. (see screenshot)

That will extract the mails and then delete them.
