I recently upgraded from just having MS Word on my computer, and got the whole MS Office 2000 program. Included in this program is MS Outlook, which i loaded to replace my old Outlook Express 6.
I seem to have been successful in getting all my old OE6 email messages into the new Outlook. The problem i’m having relates to archiving these email messages using the new Outlook.
My filing system for emails goes by year, and within each year i have allocated a folder to each different person, in which i have placed all emails that i received from that person, as well as all emails that i sent that to person.
I wanted to archive the emails for all the old years (2000 through 2003), so i did the following:
Went to File/Archive, and selected the main folder holding all these old folders. I selected the radio button that says “Archive this folder and all subfolders.” Then i clicked the “OK.” The bar at the bottom right indicated that stuff was being archived, and everything looked like it was going fine.
However, when it was finished, it had only archived the emails that i received. All the emails that i sent are still hanging out in the original folders, and have not been added to the archive.
Does anyone know why this happened, and whether i can do anything to rectify the situation? I’m sure i’ve probably just missed some very simple step, but i can’t for the life of me figure out what it is. I’ve looked in “Help” and there seems to be no answer to my problem.
Any assistance would be much appreciated.
