Deleted mails not going to Deleted Items Folder....

By raju.virtuegroup ·
Hi all,

In our office we using Outlook 2007 for emails. I configured as IMAP client. I got a problem with Outlook. If i delete the mails from Inbox or other folders then its deleting permenantly. I unchecked the option (Tools --> Options --> Other --> Empty the deleted items folder upon exiting). Then also its not fixing the problem. I am unable to understand why its not going to Deleted items folder. I googled but i am unable to find a solution.

Please help to fix this problem.

Try this

Go to Tool > Options > Other > Advanced Options.. Check the box that says "Warn me before permanently deleting items." This alone won't fix the problem, but can maybe help narrow it down.

I know you can hit Shift + Del to permanently delete something. Maybe a Shift key is stuck?

Another Possibility

After changing the setting, close Outlook and wait a minute before opening again. Maybe Outlook needs a reboot.

Also, check rules.......

There is either a rule set to permanently delete items instead of sending the the deleted items folder, or there is an option under tools which does the same thing.

did you ever fix the issue with your deleted items issue with Outlook

by Cynthia Culhane In reply to Deleted mails not going t ...

I am having the exact same problem, the deleted items in my inbox when I delete them are being crossed off, but not moving into the deleted folder. Even when I look at the folder list, my old account has a recycle bin looking folder on the deleted folder and I don't have one for my new one. I created a folder, but of course it's not working and it's driving me nuts having 100's of crossed out emails in my inbox.

Check your filters on the Deleted Items Folder

You might want to check if you have filters turned on in your deleted items folder view. One common one is to show "Only items that are unread."
