emails with flags are not archived by Outlook 2010 even if last modified LONG ago.

My outlook 2010 archives items over 3 months old.

It works fine except that items with flags never get archived (unless they were marked as complete which we rarely do here).

Outlook won't even archive items whose last modified date was 6 months ago.

Manually marking them as "complete" does not help because that changes the Last modified date to today's date. Besides, I want an automated solution which works daily without manual intervention.  

Also, the registry setting ArchiveIgnoreLastModifiedTime is not a good solution because the lastModifiedDate is much more appropriate for our needs.

Does anybody have a solution?

That post was no help.  They had a corrupted profile.  They created a new profile and their problem went away.

My problem is that Outlook is working as designed.  Outlook will only archive items with  no flags, or items that are flagged as complete.  I was hoping there was a registry entry that would override this behavior.  Something similar to ArchiveIgnoreLastModifiedTime.

Perhaps something like ArchiveIgnoreFlags.

Someday, I will "solve" the problem by writing a macro to move very old emails to the archive.  In the meantime, I am periodically moving the old emails manually.  

I am PAQing this question.

Only one expert commented on my problem, and that comment was not helpful.

This problem is not important enough to be worth further research.
