How can I store Outlook emails locally?

Hi Experts,

Could you please help me in storing outlook express emails locally in my system. Everyday I am getting so many important emails, and my INbox is full, that is compellingme to delete some of the important emails and attachments.

I am using Windows XP, with outlook 2003.

Thx
Dil.

I think you are using Outlook 2003 (one line says Outlook Express). In Outlook 2003, go to Options, Advanced and set up the Auto Archive. Set it to archive after some date and store the archive locally. This will move the emails out of your inbox and into an archive. The archive is easily accesible from within Outlook.

My apologies. Auto Archive is in the Other tab. Tools -> Options -> Other tab and click on the Auto Archive button.  Archiving will do what you need, just review the option very carefully, note where the archive is located and do uncheck the option to delete messages.   ... Thinkpads_User

I think maybe you are in a different tab.

In the first picture above where you see the tabs: Preferences, Mail Setup, Mail Format, Spelling, Security, Other and Delegates, click on the Other tab in this line of tabs. You will see the Auto Archive button there.

Thank you for the latest picture.

There was an update (KB2412171) that was for Outlook 2007 that caused Auto Archive to disappear. Uninstalling that update solved the problem.

1. See if you have that update and uninstall it.
2. Try doing an Office Repair from with Outlook, or another Office application.
3. If that does not work, consider uninstalling Office completely, restarting and reinstalling Office. Be sure to back up the mail files before doing this.
