The cumulative update packages for February 2011 contain the latest hotfixes for the 2007 Microsoft Office core suite applications and for 2007 Microsoft Office servers. "As part of the Feb 2011 CU, Microsoft added Exchange 2010 Personal Archive support in Outlook 2007 as part of the CU," revealed KB2493732.
"Personal Archive is a feature available with Microsoft Exchange Server 2010 Messaging Records Management (MRM). It can eliminate the need for Personal Folder files (.pst). By using Personal Archive in Exchange Server 2010, the e-mail archive folders are stored online so that users can access the archived files by using Microsoft Outlook Web App or from a secondary computer by using Outlook 2010 or, now, Outlook 2007. By using any of these client applications, users can view an archive mailbox and move or copy messages between their primary mailboxes and the archive."
Of note, in Outlook 2007, you cannot search across the primary and archive mailboxes. Also, in Outlook 2007, a user cann't use personal tags (also known as archive policies) to move items to the archive mailbox. However, default archive policies will continue to be applied. Users can use OWA to see or apply archive policies.
