  • As I explained earlier, I am not aware of any setting in Exchange covering this.  It's strictly an Outlook setting as far as I know.

  • Agreed, this is a client setting, and is not related to Exchange.  You can report on the presence of the pst itself with something like this:

    or the registry keys themselves.  I believe they are stored per-outlook profile (hard to enum) as well as some settings globally:

    • HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Office\14.0\Outlook\Preferences\ArchivePeriod
    • HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Office\14.0\Outlook\Preferences\ArchiveGranularity
    • HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Office\14.0\Outlook\Preferences\ArchiveDelete
    • HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Office\14.0\Outlook\Preferences\ArchiveMount
    • HKCU\Software\Microsoft\Office\14.0\Outlook\Preferences\ArchiveOld

  • If you are talking about Outlook archiving, that's not something that's configured in Exchange.  If you're talking about some third-party archiving product, then you'd need to talk to the vendor.  If you're talking about something else, please explain in more detail what you mean by "auto archive".

  • So in Outlook>Tools>Options>Other>AutoArchive. I would like to know which users have the setting enabled.

  • Maybe something like System Center Configuration Manager can collect the setting from clients for you.
