    You may have some type of retention settings configured in outlook or through a group policy of some kind? I would have to agree that I have emails in my sent items that go back over a year.

    If you are not the Exchange administrator - i would check with your admins to see if there are any Group Policy's or retention settings in effect as suggested by xxdcmast.
