how to only view 2 months of emails in outlook 2010

I currently had a user who came back from vacation and opened up her OUtlook and to find emails that were previously moved or deleted showing up in her inbox.
They are using OUtlook 2010 and an Exchange 2010 Server.
I tried reinstalling, rebuilding, create new profile, uncheck cache mode, disable add ins,checked rules..and every other recommendation on the web to no avail.

So now instead of deleting and moving these emails again I want to be able to open up outlook and only see the latest 2 months of emails... I looked at the rules and did not see a specific rule to use so that the 2 months is revolving not using specific dates.
appreciate your help

In this case i would be creating an archive for emails that are greater than 2 months old. You can create a local archive and set this up within Outlook or you can use an Archive Mailbox in Exchange 2010.

Setup AutoArchive Outlook 2010

Ahh ok sounds good. You can do this following the below steps...
- Open Outlook
- Click the View Tab
- Click the View Settings Button
- Click on Filter
- On the Messages Tab click the drop down for Time, Select Received
- Click the Drop down beside received and select Last Month, This month (or whatever time frame you want)

Thanks Will,
I looked at this option but unless I am missing something you can not go back any longer than a month?

Unfortunately that is correct. If you want to proceed this way.

As stated before you can always move items to an archive as well.
