archive outlook when having several subfolder within inbox

I am connected to an Exchange server.  The message I get is that the exchange server is getting full so I have to clean up my inbox in Outlook client.  The way I have constructed my inbox is that I have many subfolders which contain emails for each recepient.  I will setup inbox to remove email older than 12 months.  When I setup my Archive settings, will this remove older emails in all the subfolders also or will it only touch the main inbox?

if I do it for the inbox, what will it archive?  All subfolders?

No. You need to do properties for each folder. Sometime Outlook will choose the default settings by itself. But it does not always do that.

So to be certain about your settings, look through each folder. I have to do that for my Outlook in order to achieve certainty.
