How does the archive feature in Outlook work?

I have thousands of emails in my Outlook folders, and I think that is why Outlook is so slow nowadays. ;)

What exactly does the archive feature do, and are the emails easy to access still once they have been archived?

Thanks.

Ok, I'm new to this site, as of today. I found this post on outlook from 06. Am I missing something? did no one answer the question or are they cleared after some time?:confused:

Well, in case anyone is still wondering...

It can have some effect if you save alot. What is a lot? Depends. on the machine. Is it local? or Exchange Server? Size of Space and memory?

Anyway if you are a pack rat like me. Then yes archive. If you wish to archive locally then enable autoarchive and let it do the work for you. If you wish to archive on a server or some other place that is regularlly backed up, then archive manually.

Very easy to access after archive. You will have a new folder Called "Archive Folders" inside you will find what looks like a replica of the subfolders from your inbox. All old email will move from like folder in your in box to like folders in your archive.

Wow I forgot about this post. Yes you are correct. There were no replies since I first posted it back in 2006. :D

I don't even use Outlook anymore, but I'm thinking of installing it again just to have access to all of my old emails that I have saved in a backup file. :)
