My Outlook 2000 doesn't complain either if I set it to auto-archive just my
Spam folder.  I don't *want* my spam automagically removed, so I undid this
change immediately after trying it, so can't swear it will work in the end.

This is a completely up-to-date Outlook 2K, BTW, including all current
Office Update service packs (the latest of which (SP-3) added registry keys
so you can selectively disable Outlook's draconian blocking of nearly all
attachments -- many people (like me <wink>) feared to install previous
service packs because they blocked OL2K attachments without hope of ever
getting at them).

You can skip a step by holding down the shift key while clicking delete
