Windows 7: Can't change auto-archive options

Can't change auto-archive options


I use Microsoft Outlook 2007. It currently auto-archives my Deleted Items, Sent Items and Search Folders. I didn't set it up to do this, it just does it automatically.

I also want it to auto-archive my Inbox. I followed the help instructions to try and do this (Tools > Options > Other or right clicking the Inbox folder > Properties). However, I see no auto-archive options at all. The help says:
Note Depending on your computer settings and add-ins, you might see different tabs in the Options dialog box.
But it does not explain how else I can change the auto-archive settings. Please could someone tell me how?

Thank you.
