Dear Experts, I am in a nasty situation. We upgraded to exchange 2010 and some of the users were allow to have too big of an inbox to just move to exchange 2010 from 2003. I can't figure a way to archive older items in the inbox from  Jan 2011 back...  I need to reduced the size of the in-boxes without deleting the data.  If needed be I need to import an item back. Whats a good trick out there for people like us?

 

Regards, M

Exchange 2010 "Archive Policies" - http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/outlook-help/assign-archive-policy-to-email-messages-HA101861781.aspx?CTT=3

It appears the "1 Year Move to Archive" policy would apply to your situation given we're in the first month of '13.

Outlook .adm template, force Auto Archive via GPO

http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/office-2003-resource-kit/setting-up-retention-settings-in-outlook-2003-HA001140286.aspx 

"By using Group Policy with the Outlook policy file (Outlk11.adm), you can lock down AutoArchive settings for users. In Group Policy, AutoArchive policies are located under \User Configuration\Administrative Templates\Microsoft Office Outlook 2003\Tools | Options\Other\AutoArchive. You have a number of options for AutoArchive settings, including how frequently to run AutoArchive and whether to prompt users before running AutoArchive."
