How to do that

For archiving a folder, all you need to do is right-click on the specific folder and select Properties. Thereafter, go to the Auto Archive tab to configure your archiving settings.

Launch Microsoft Outlook, and open a default folder that is not over-crowded with messages. Then, start moving the emails from the inbox or other default folder to archive folders or to any other sub-folders. You will notice that lesser the items the email client has to display at startup, the quicker it will start loading.
