I have a full mailbox, (100mb) and cannot receive any more mail.
 
I need to clear the mail server (Which I can do easily), but I need to keep a copy of the emails.
 
If I use AutoArchive, can I then clear my server?
Can I also access the archived emails once they are off the mail server?
 
Quite important, and I thought best to ask before doing anything I may regret later Smile | :)
 
Thanks guys.

Yes, you can either archive everything you require as a one off, or set rules so that everything that is over say 1 month is archived.
Then in future when you get a full server, delete everything over 1 month and hey presto, room for more emails and still have the old ones backed up.
 
You can access by clicking on the .pst file, it will open up the email within the local copy of outlook, with transfering it to the server.
