managed default folders

you create a managed default folder (Sent Items - 365 days)
create a managed content setting for that folder
create a managed folder mailbox policy
apply the content setting to the policy
apply the policy to users

You can also modify the default settings of the Auto-Archive features in Outlook. http://support.microsoft.com/kb/830119

If you have a custom Office/Outlook package that you use to install on client machines, just modify the defaults.

it would be better to use group policy to control auto-archive if you wanted to got that route
otherwise users could turn it off/on
