I've been using Outlook on my Mac to access the Exchange Server. In my inbox, I just reached 4 GB. Now, I would like to archive the majority of my old emails and put them in a separate file (so I can access them if I need to). What's the process for this? I don't want to lose any of the emails.

    To make archive, it is necessary to create a folder (for easy identification, name as Archive) and make it unhide. Open outlook, and click the menu > preferences and then uncheck the box 'Hide on my computer folders'. Now click file menu and select Export. On next screen, deselect all check boxes except mail, then click the radio button for 'items that are in the category'. On the next screen make sure to select 'No, do not delete items'. Next to select the name of the file that will be saving. click save to begin export.
