TO CREATE AN AUTO-ARCHIVE SCHEDULE

3. Name “AutoArchive”
When “Timed Occurrence” — I set mine to every night at 3 AM
Action “Run AppleScript” — set the saved script as the action script
As long as Entourage is running each night, this script will kick-off an archive your messages to a local folder. If you dont leave Entourage running, you could choose to just run the script whenever necessary.
You may modify two variables within the script:

This image gives you an idea of how an archive folder tree is created.
