Outlook Archive works on “Modified” date in my outlook 2007 exchange account. So when we move the files later then this date is considered for the back-up/archive.Any possibilities of disabling this feature and archive based on Received date? Can I do it in the exchange server 2003 ? Or can any one give me a macro/vb script to accomplish this?

Thanks,
Sumesh

Outlook does not archive messages as expected based on the received date
KB: 295657... is by design

If we use the script\macro to modify the MAPI properties...that would introduce a lot of issues

>> better change the options for archival @ Outlook UI

I think the only option you would have is to do a custom Search for the items you want, and to move them manually.  However, this wouldn't re-create the same folders in the Target location as the proper Archive feature does.  

There are third-party tools to do this - check the qwesome www.slipstick.com for these:
