That's a very broad question, so don't expect a very precise answer.

There are
- un-archive, if Notes archiving was used
- plain copy-paste
- by writing an agent

Can you please explain your question, and be more specific? What is "archived" in this case? Was Notes archiving used? Or do you mean backed up? How many mails have to be unarchived?
Edwin HofferTechnical ExpertCommented:

Try these steps:

1. Open Lotus Notes and click on "Archived Emails"

2. Click on the box next to the emails you would like to unarchive

3. Click "return to inbox." The emails will become unarchived and return to the inbox


3. In the archive database view and cut (or copy) an email to the clipboard, then paste them back into your Inbox folder.  

Limitations: Unfortunately, there is not a way to open or unarchived all emails at once without causing problems with the Lotus Notes server. You can only unarchived and open 10 messages at a time.

First set up a local archive database then hit Actions > Archive > Archive settings > create new criteria, Now specify the exact place of the local archive file, criteria name, & if possible time frames & preferences based on which you like to archive the messages. It is possible to either select items manually and archive with Actions > Archive > Archive selected documents, or simply drag & drop them in the mailbox view. You can use Cut/Paste option, but it is not recommended.
