So I am transitioning from Lotus to Outlook/Exchange. My Outlook is starting to take a long time responding and opening my inbox at startup (takes about 10 minutes). I am assuming thats because I have over 8400 items in the inbox. I work with legal, so I keep all my emails and try not to delete any.. I am looking for suggestions on how to resolve the loading issues on startup with Outlook.
## Setup ##
-Connected to Exchange Server
--OST size is about 19GB
---Over 8000 items in INBOX
## Question ##
1. I am wanting to go through the Archive process and archive all my emails from 2012 and beyond.. From my understanding its as easy as just going to File -> Archive -> Criteria set to 1/1/2013 -> select Path to archive the PST...
So the question for this is, since I am on exchange and even though I archive everything prior to 2013, does it still keep the emails in my INBOX that is from last year? DOes that mean after I archive I have to actually select DELETE in order to keep it from appearing?
