How to stop auto archive this item checkbox

      you have added the column “Do Not AutoArchive” to my Inbox. However, you cannot change the check box from unchecked to checked by clicking on it. How is this supposed to work?

That option indeed isn’t directly clear as the checkbox looks clickable already when you add the column to your view. However, as you noticed, it doesn’t.

For that function to work directly from your view, you must set your view to “Allow in-cell editing”;

   first click on the tab “View” then selct “View Settings”

   Now click on the button “Other Settings” select the option: Allow in-cell editing

You can now click on the checkbox directly from your view to easily turn on/off archiving for that item.

These steps can be followed on Outlook 2010 installed in Windows XP and Windows 7
