    In resetting up my Outlook, I was/am trying to archive items out of my Inbox. I set it to archive everything prior to 8/009, using the calendar, and even checked the "Archive even if marked don't" box.

    Yet I still have items from 2008 in the Inbox.

    What would make this not work?

    Archiving in Outlook determines what to archive based on the modified date of each item not the received date.

    The date in your post is rather confusing.

    Joe, I'm sorry!

    I am trying to archive all prior to 8-31-2009, but items from 2008 are remaining. I hadn't opened those (that I knew or recall) so why would it leave them? Or, assuming for the sake of discussion that I had opened them, then how do I get them to archive?
