Windows 7: How can i configure missing auto archive settings?

How can i configure missing auto archive settings?

Booyah to all you outlook brainiacs!

I use OUTLOOK for many email accounts, mostly POP but also Office365 and also to hook up with my corporate clients using exchange. (No - I'm not a great bit-twiddler anymore, I just work on business stuff.)

I run a Windows 7 notebook that I carry around.

Anyway, my auto-archive settings seem to be missing. I'm sure they used to be here somewhere. I would have thought they would be on File > Options > Advanced > somewhere here, but no (see attached).

I don't see any admin templates installed in GPEDIT.msc (not that I would install ANY policies on my personal laptop anyway.)

Can you help me run down the problem and get archiving working? THANKS!

This might be one possible solution.

Have a look at this registry key in REGEDIT (Start, Run, Regedit)


In the right pane look for a keyword called DisablePst

If you have this key you can delete it, or set its value to 0 (zero)..

Then log out or reboot.

The version 14.0 corresponds to office 2010. Older versions have lower version numbers, but the keyword to look for is the same.

As always, it is best to backup your registry or create a manual restore point before making changes to the registry.
