I use outlook express for my mail needs until one day it become so huge in dbx that i decided to change to outlook 2003.

I successfully imported every message using the outlook import function.

The problem I am facing now is the archive which I need it so badly is not working??

I create and started the archive, the lower right corner showing archiving and later in 2 seconds its done.

Went to the archive folder, saw the folder name but nothing inside.

I am quite sure that my steps are correct. Any advice?

Hi MaMister.
Run a search for "archive.pst" to see if it went somewhere else.
To view in Outlook, click File>Open>Outlook Data File.
Let us know. :thumbsup:

Hi, I can see the archive folder and the sub folders but it is all empty regardless or what date I choose... Even anything older than today won't appear.

That may be because they where modified as far as I remember outlook uses the modified date to select which files to archive so if they where moved about today then selecting an earlier date wouldnt do anything.

Is that right or am I just speaking complete nonsense?
