    I have been trying to use the Archive feature on Microsoft Outlook Exchange Mailbox – but what I have found is when I choose File| -> Archive| And then I choose to Archive items older than a certain date, it Archives all sub folders but it doesn’t Archive any emails that are in the main inbox root folder even though they are in the date range to be Archived.

    Its very strange not sure why it doesn’t archive the inbox only archives subfolders – not sure if anyone knows why this is.

    Thanks

    Have you checked with your IT department? (I'm assuming this is work related)

    I mention this since they could have a rule set up server side.
