Archive only Sent Messages in Outlook 2003

I have a user here who would like to archive only his sent items. He has already archived his inbox.

If it's a once off, then the user can follow these steps:
Click on the sent items
Click on File -> Archive
Select the "Archive items older than.." date
Specify the file to archive to, and then hit OK.

Morgan is right for a one-time archive.  Your user can set auto-archive settings to only archive his Inbox and Sent folders.

Right-click the sent folder, select properties from the drop-down menu and select the Auto-Archive tab.  Then choose the archive method (use default settings or set specific settings for the folder).

Do the same thing for the Inbox and any other folders to be archived.  Set any folders he doesn't want archived to "Do not archive this folder".

Then run an archive using the "archive all folders according to their autoarchive settings" to archive only his selected items.  Whenever his autoarchive wants to run (usually 30 days or so), it will always archive according to his rules.
