Meeting items - how do you set the expiration?

    How do you set the expiration date on meeting items such that the
    autoarchive - delete expired items (e-mail folders only) works.

    Please see the following MS Office help info below and the last paragraph
    specifically. We know how to do e-mail messages and it works fine, it's
    just the calendar items.

    Thanks in advance,

    Your Microsoft Outlook mailbox grows as you create and receive items
    (item: An item is the basic element that holds information in Outlook
    (similar to a file in other programs). Items include e-mail messages,
    appointments, contacts, tasks, journal entries, notes, posted items, and
    documents.). To keep your mailbox manageable, you need another place to
    store- archive- the old items that are important but not frequently used.
    You also need a way to automatically move those old items to the archive
    location and to discard items whose content has expired and is no longer
    valid. AutoArchive takes care of these processes for you.

    AutoArchive is on by default and runs automatically at scheduled
    intervals, clearing out old and expired items from folders. Old items are
    those that reach the archiving age you specify, and may include such things
    as the original e-mail you received with the goals for a project you're
    assigned to.

    Expired items are mail and meeting items whose content is no longer
    valid after a certain date, such as a meeting you had four months ago that
    still appears on your calendar. Although an expiration date is optional, you
    can define it at the time you create the item or at a later date. When the
    item expires, it's unavailable and has a strike-out mark through it.
