I just did Auto archive to clean out old messages, then went to File, Open, Outlook data file and clicked "Archive" and nothing is there. (Also could choose Outlook or Outlook1 under Archive)



I have tried everything, it says It is archiving when I click auto archive but I can't find them,
thanks
C.

Your emails are in files ending with .dbx. Do a search on *.dbx I believe to get them back you will have to Import them....

My reply was for Outlook Express. Looks like your using Outlook. I think those are in a .pst file....
