The problem is Outlook, not the archive mailbox.

Outlook has problems with more than about 7500 to 10000 items in a single folder. The fact that this is an archive mailbox has nothing to do with it. Therefore the number of items in the folder is the problem.
You need to separate them in to sub folders, probably using rules or just through OWA.
