  • Hi
       There are several ways to move messages to archive mailboxes:

    • Move or copy messages manually      Mailbox users can manually move or copy messages from their primary      mailbox or a .pst file to their archive mailbox. The archive mailbox      appears as another mailbox or .pst file in Outlook and Outlook Web App.
    • Move or copy messages using Inbox rules      Mailbox users can create Inbox rules in Outlook or Outlook Web App to      automatically move messages to a folder in their archive mailbox. To learn      more, see Learn About Inbox Rules.
    • Move messages using retention policies      You can use retention policies to automatically move messages to the      archive. Users can also apply a personal tag to move messages to the      archive. For details about archive and retention policies, see Archive      and Retention Policies later in this topic.
    • Import messages from .pst files      In Exchange 2010 SP1, you can use a mailbox import request to import      messages from a .pst file to a user's archive or primary mailbox. For      details, see Understanding      Mailbox Import and Export Requests. Tools used to locate .pst files      within an organization are available from Microsoft partners. For a list      of Microsoft partners for archiving, see "Archive and Compliance      Partners" in Independent Software Vendors.

  • Creating the online archive mailbox doesn't cause anything to happen with existing mail.  Users have to move it there.

    Is there anything in the event log?
