Go to your folder list in Outlook, right click on a folder you want archived, select Properties, look in the Archive Tab and make sure auto archive is ON for the folder. If not, turn it on and check other folders.

Hi John,

Bit confused here. I don't want to run auto archive.
I am trying to archive emails before year 2011. (And i can't chose if from auto archiving )

When i go to properties of folder>go to AutoArchive tab i get 3 options(Screen shot attached)
1-Do not archive items on this folder
2-Archive items in the folder using the default settings
3-Archive this folder using these settings

It was selected on number 1. I changed it to option 2(which out enabling auto archive under default setting) but no good

You need to set all folders so they will Archive. That setting just says archive according to the settings.

Set all folder to archive. Then close Outlook, restart and then try manually archiving again.

1) Click the File tab, then click 'Cleanup Tools'
12) Click Archive
23) Click the Archive this folder and all subfolders option, and then click the folder that you want to archive. Any subfolder of the folder you select is included in this manual archive
34) Under Archive items older than, enter a date

5) If you do not want to use the default file or location, under Archive file, click Browse to specify a new file or location. Browse to find the file that you want, or enter the file name, then click OK. The destination file location appears in the Archive file box.

6) Select the Include items with 'Do not Auto Archive' checked check box to include any items that might be individually marked to be excluded from automatic archiving. This option does not remove that exclusion from these items, but instead ignores the Do not Auto Archive check box for this archive only.
