Outlook rule to automatically move deleted files to archive folder after two weeks

The problem is I want to save deleted mails to an folder on my drive, but can't use autoarchive (as suggested in the other thread), since autoarchive is controlled by our IT department, and I don't want to mess with them on this.

Is there any other way to do this? Preferably with a outlook rule (but I'm open to other suggestions)

Manually you can drag-n-drop mail to a folder and then delete them from Outlook. If you want to automate it, how do you want to trigger it? –  techie007 Oct 7 '11 at 15:19
    
Manually I can fix it yes, thanks. Preferably I would like to automate it on f.x deletion. E.g. when a mail is deleted it would be saved to the folder. –  Casper Oct 10 '11 at 9:25

There is no way to do this. Outlook rules are for incoming and outgoing messages only. There is a way to create a VBA macro however.
