Auto Archiving in Outlook 2003

I have been able to remove the Auto Archive button using the OUTLK11.ADM and GPO. What I cannot find an answer to is whether or not this policy turns off Auto Archive if it was previously enabled, or if it just removes the options for users to configure Auto Archive. If it only hides the ability to configure Auto Archive, is there a mechanism to turn off Auto Archive globally?

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

In the Outlook 2003 Autoarchive settings you would need to select the Enabled option for the Policy object and then uncheck all the options. Most notably uncheck the “Turn on AutoArchive” checkbox.

When the policy is enabled and the “Turn on AutoArchive” checkbox is unchecked it will set the Software\Policies\Microsoft\Office\11.0\Outlook\Preferences\DoAging registry key value to 0 for the current user.

This will disable the archive.pst functionality, but will not physically delete any existing archive.pst files or move archived mail back into the user inboxes.
