I have deployed archive mailboxes for my exchange 2010 users. They see the new mailbox in their outlook profile and that seems to work fine. Now the question is, how do they auto-archive to this new mailbox? i only see where autoarchive setting allows you to choose a .pst location. Can we use this new fancy archive mailbox as our auto-archive location?

hi DEFclub,
- in Outlook, to set your archive folder as the default, go to the 'Tools' menu.
- select 'Options' then select 'Other' tab.
- click the 'AutoArchive' button. click the 'Browse' button and select the archive folder and the .pst location that have been created.
- then set the necessary archive options and settings available in that window such as Autoarchive every xx days and etc (as below image).
