Personal Archive folder not showing in Outlook 2010 Pro

Ok, I am absolutely stumped.

We now have Exchange 2010 running on new servers. I am migrating mailboxes over from 2003. We use Office 2010 Pro. I enabled archiving on my account and it seems to be working. The OWA shows the Online Archive, and I can move emails to it. The retention policies seem to be working, as email is being automatically moved for me.

However, I cannot, for the life of me, get my Online Archive folder to show in Outlook 2010. I have scoured the internet trying all kinds of solutions.

- I am using Office 2010 Pro Plus, volume license key
- Uninstalled Office, reinstalled with latest download from VLM site
- Recreated by mail profile
- Messed with the cached settings
- Tried multiple users

What am I missing here?

It seems to be working ok now. I'm working on retention policies and then I'll try some more users.

Have you tried a new profile completely? Start with no cache.

I completely removed the profile from the control panel and removed OST files. Is there something more I need to try to get in completely new?

Simplify Active Directory Administration

Administration of Active Directory does not have to be hard.  Too often what should be a simple task is made more difficult than it needs to be.The solution?  Hyena from SystemTools Software.  With ease-of-use as well as powerful importing and bulk updating capabilities.

Yeah, I know I've used different names. In fact, I even tried a completely different user that wasn't migrated. It was new mailbox created on 2010.

This is very frustrating.

I figured it out! Here is what I had to do:

1. Give myself Full permissions to my box through EMC (which seems silly)

2. Delete my profile and delete OST files

3. Start Outlook and let it autodiscover my account.

Now I can see the Online Archive!

Well that didn't last long. I closed Outlook and reopened, and now it shows an Archive, but it's not named Online anymore and it won't let me open it.

mody, that's the one I was looking at when I tried the idea above that seemed to work. But now it shows but won't open.

I hope this isn't as glitchy as it's being right now. It just started randomly working again. It's like the archive mailbox couldn't login or something.

One of the posts on the same link also says...
"By accident it is solved for me and my collegeas by installing Visio 2010 (Premium)."
You may try that (if possible)
