Don't do this with topics. The topics may be OK for other reasons, but
for archiving there is a better way (using topics to control archiving
will require code modification or a custom handler).
Have your machine generated messages include an X-No-Archive: header
and they won't be archived. Headers that will work to not archive
X-No-Archive: any value
They are not case sensitive.
