    Assisted Solution

    If you're talking about archiving off old messages in the way that you can do with Outlook for Windows, you can't - at least not automatically. The easiest way is to just move the messages from the account they're in to the equivalent folder in "On My Computer" - potentially not shown by default. You can show "On My Computer" folders by clicking on Outlook /  Preferences / General and unticking "Hide On My Computer folders".

    So, for example, select a bunch of your old messages in your Inbox, right click on the selection, choose Move / Choose Folder... and type inbox in the search box in the dialogue box which shows up. Select On My Computer/Inbox as the destination and the messages will move.
