Applies to Outlook 2007 and Outlook 2010

Before you dig deep into this problem; do a quick check on the Individual Folders of your PST File for which you require archival to function

Right-Click on the Inbox/Sent Items and select Properties – AutoArchive

If yes; the solution is simple. In the first screenshot showing Auto Archive Settings, please ensure you click theĀ Apply these Settings to all folders now and click ok

Now check the Properties of the Individual Folders again; the AutoArchive settings should now show as below
