[access-uk] Re: IMAP accounts and deleted messages

Sorry Jonathan, I'm talking about Outlook 2003 :-)

A clarification please. If "Purge items while switching folders while
online" is checked, then deleted messages will be permanently deleted once I
move away from my inbox. Have I got that right?

In any rate, Going into Email Accounts>Change Account>More Settings gives me
four pages, General, Outgoing Server, Connection and Advanced. Nothing about
deleted items I could find. As far I can tell, I explored all options areas
in Outlook 2003 but could not find any settings for deleted items/purge
messages. Damn Microsoft, where have they hidden it!

Thanks for your help.

Amro

Well, the answer is "yes", but how we get there depends on which email
client you use! Your headers suggest it is Outlook 11. If it's anything like
my current version, you go to:
Account settings, then select the account you want, then select "change
account", then select "more settings", then select the "deleted items" tab,
and tick the last box on that tab which is called "Purge items while
switching folders while online".

That should give you the result you want.
