    Question Archiving Multiple folders in Outlook

    Well, it is 10:38 PM and I am still at the office. I am doing some clean up for the users since some of them are very lazy. I have been cleaning up a user since 8 PM and I haven't finish yet setting up the autoarchive settings for this person. He has a LOT of folders. Like a folder, then it opens in 30 folders, and each folder opens in 4 or 5 at least.
    If I set a folder to Autoarchive, will it also keep those settings for the subfolders????
    I haven't seen any option for it, so I am setting folder by folder. I hope to be done soon, but I want to know so I don't have to do this again.
    Also, if anyone is familiar with Exchange, is it possible to set up AutoArchive options from the server??? Like a template, so everytime a user creates a folder automatically sets it up for autoarchive??
    This will save me valuable time

    Anyone there with a solution????
    This is for my work, and we mainly use Office 2000 and Office 97 (few of those)
    I am the only one with Office 2003. I saw that in 2003 there is a button in the AutoArchive properties that lets you apply the settings to all folders. That is great, but.......most have Office 2000.
    Any solution out there?????
