I have been getting messages occasionally about whether or not I want to Archive all my Outlook data (including my calendar, which I like to access frequently). Is there any reason why Ihave to do this? I have been declining this but just want to make sure there is not some huge advantage to doing this that I might be missing out on.

Thanks.

No, you don't need to do it. If your pst is huge (multiple GB), archiving may make outlook more responsive, but otherwise, its not necessary to archive. You can check the option to never show again so its less annoying - you can always change the setting in tools, options, other tab, archiving.
