After Archiving, you need to compact your *.PST file.

Like deleting items in a database, only the pointers to the e-mail are removed when deleting or archiving... to see a reduction in file size you must compact (or "pack") the database.

Tools Services Personal Folders file --> Properties --> Compact Now.
