    Actaully an Archive can be setup to automatically move your OLD Emails off to a PST in your specified location

    A PST or Personal Folder you create in OUtlook
    This person folder you usually have open and currently work in it.
    Ideally you would save the majority of your emails in your Inbox into your personal folders

    Think of this one a more manual process. Although you can setup rules to automatically move emails from your inbox into folders in your personal folder
