Mastodon Bytes Tip #8: Outlook Archives
The Help Desk has been receiving calls lately about where to find archives in Outlook. Unfortunately, Outlook doesn't make archives. The only way to save your emails now is to make folders and sort each of them entirely on your own. They will no longer be saved each night to a local folder. Read the details. [PDF]
