Hi,

It is possible to change or turn-off the automatic moving of old emails to archive in Outlook. You can do it for all the folders or only for the specific folder.

To disable automatic moving of old emails from all the folders to archive, go to Options, click on Advanced and then on AutoArchive Settings:

outlook settings turn off automatic move old emails from inbox to archive

In the displayed window, you can turn-off the moving of old emails to archive automatically:

outlook disable moving of old emails from inbox to archive automatically

You can also change the AutoArchive settings for one folder, by clicking on the specific folder with right mouse button and choosing Properties:

outlook settings move old emails from inbox to archive folder

Then in AutoArchive section, you can modify the settings according to your needs:
