What are the aging periods in Outlook?

AutoArchive permanently deletes expired items. Expired items are items that have passed their aging periods:

 

Folder Aging period
Inbox, Drafts, Calendar, Tasks, Notes, and Journal 6 months
Sent Items and Deleted Items 2 months
Outbox 3 months


To determine the age of an item:

Item type When the aging period starts
E-mail message The received date/time or when you last changed and saved the message, whichever is later.
Calendar meeting, event, or appointment The date when you last changed and saved the item, whichever is later. Recurring items are not AutoArchived.
Task The completion date or when you last changed and saved the task. Tasks that are not marked complete are not AutoArchived. Tasks assigned to other people are archived only if marked complete.
Note When you last changed and saved the note.
Journal entry The date the Journal entry was created or when you last changed and saved the entry.
Contact Contacts are not archived by default. However, you can manually archive them.
