Auto Archive in Outlook 2003 & 2007

Dear experts,

I have a query regarding auto archive in Outlook (2003 & 2007).

I know how to do archiving in Outlook. My question is that when I check the properties of my Inbox it has been set to "Do not archive items in this folder". I then changed this to "Archive items in this folder using default settings......".

While I open a sub-folder in random the setting is still "Do not archive items.....". So I assumed this setting is inherit from its parent folder (in this case my Inbox). I checked a few other sub-folders and they are having the same settings.

I now want to archive everything in my Inbox. Do I have to go to each sub-folder and change the Archive settings? That will be a pain in the backside as I have over 200 sub-folders, and I will need to do this for 10 other people too. Is there a quicker way to change such setting in one go?

Users are using a mixture of Outlook 2003 and 2007. We have Exchange.

Thanks in advance.

When you execute a manual archive, there is a box it says archived including subfolders, ensure that is ticked, then run the archive and it should archive all your folders, subfolders etc base from you given date.

To check this, you need to open up your archive to ensure the folders, subfolders were archived and I bet they do.

I know about that box. But my question is, if a folder has "Do not archive this folder" ticked, will it still be archived? I don't want to "Try and error" as  most users have large mailboxes.
