To determine what content to expire Exchange uses the PR_LAST_MODIFICATION_TIME property tag to compare to the age limit of the Public Folder. If the PR_LAST_MODIFICATION_TIME is older that the age limit set on the public folder, the message will expire and be deleted. To see the PR_LAST_MODIFICATION_TIME use MFCMapi.exe or in Outlook add the Modified column to the display of the public folder in question.

Outlook does not archive messages as expected based on the received date

No
Not found any solution so far
Unfortunatly, having never used MFCMAPI I somewhat confused on how to get using that tool.
I am supposing that i have to install that tool on my Exchangeserver!!!?
or is it working from any client connected to the domain?

Thanks for you help

you could download the MFCMapi.exe from the below location

we need to check the modified date on the public folder @ a client machine where the Outlook-profile is configure


-------------------------------

3.In the Choose Profile dialog box, select the user profile for the Exchange store that you want to view, and then click OK.

Option 2:
======
Alternatively, we could use the Outlook to check the modified date:
> On the Outlook profile where the public folders are accessed\views..using the "Create custom view" --> fields --> add columns for the modified-time.

Calendar items are not archived as expected when you use the Archive or AutoArchive features in Outlook
