Outlook 2007 Archiving and Exchange Server

Last Modified: 2019-12-17
I manage the Exchange Server on which all our internal email accounts are stored. I'm about to retire from my position.
My own "business" Outlook account has been in service for over 10 years.  My account must remain accessible to my successor.
It now has several subfolders under the INBOX folder with thousands of emails in these folders.
I'd like to pick and choose which of these folders / files to archive up to a very late date:  November 1, 2019.
Some of the subfolders contain personal information emails.  I don't want to leave any traces of those on the Exchange Server.
My thoughts are that archiving would create an "archive" folder on my own computer's local hard drive.  I can then cut / copy that archive folder to a flash drive.  I'm supposing the "archive" folder would remain on my account on the Exchange Server.  If so, I'd want it removed.
1) Can I pick and choose the folders AND date for archiving?
2) Can I remove the archive folder from my account on the Exchange Server?
