Setting up auto archive in Outlook 2011 with Macs

I am trying to setup several macs to autoarchive emails that are 6 months or older to a mapped drive that I created on the network. The mapping of the drive is all setup and works, however when I am setting up the autoarchive rule and I try to point to the map drive it isnt an option. The documentation that I am using to archive is the following link... http://emds.unt.edu/AutoArchiveOutlook2011

 Attached is the screenshot where you have the option to select a location, after selecting the arrows to select a new location it only shows outlook folders or I can create a new folder in outlook. I am not seeing my mapped drive that I created or a place to select a network drive.

Is there something that I need to do within Outlook or is this a feature that Outlook 2011 doesnt support.

You cannot select a shared drive, you can only select a folder that will appear in the outlook list.

Hiya Cmartineau,

Did you find any other solution to this problem? We've got a similar problem at our facility. We wan't to limit the amount of space taken up on the server from the Macs by enable autoarchiving to a network folder. Alas, this seems impossible. Did you find a workaround?

Best regards,
Kasper
