outlook 2010

i have outlook 2010 and i set my deleted items to archive anything older than a month. i click the file tab on the ribbon, and clicked cleanup tools, and chose archive, then i selected the deleted items folder checked all the settings ( they looked fine ) then clicked ok. outlook shows that it is archiving, but when it is done, and i check the deleted items - there are things still in there from 2010! would there be a reason it is ignoring really old deleted items?

Deleted items are supposed to be deleted.
You should either archive from your inbox or moved the mail to be archived to another folder first, not the deleted items folder.

Try restoring the deleted items to a new folder you create just for archiving, setup archiving on that folder and see if the problem persist.
If its fixed you can just move your mail to that folder instead of deleting it before archiving it.

One little-known fact about archiving is that the auto-archive operates on last MODIFED date, not RECEIVE date. You can add the header for modified in the email list and sort by modified date. Any emails that have been modifed after they were recieved will not be archived until that modified date reaches the archive criteria. Oh and if you set up cached mode on a new pc ALL email will be changed to a modified date of the day you set it up in cached mode.
