Set auto-archive in Outlook

Tech TricksYou may already know how to archive your emails in Microsoft Outlook, but did you know you can set this up automatically? Doing so gets rid of a lot of the hassle of doing it manually.


In order to auto-archive a folder, you need to right-click on one in the left-hand side of the screen, such as “inbox”. After doing so, click on the “Auto Archive” tab.


There, you’ll need to select the “Archive this folder using these settings” option, and then determine how often you want the folder to be archived, and which folder they should be moved to.


Set up an automatic archive, and you won’t have to do so manually anymore.
