If you have the message selected in your list, hold down the shift key and hit delete. This will remove the email instead of placing it in the Deleted Items folder.

Also you can choose the Empty the deleted items folder upon exiting option under TOOLS,OPTIONS, OTHER in Outlook. But this would still move your deleted files into deleted files folder. The only advantage is you dont have to manually empty that folder.

If you're doing this in code, use CDO rather than the Outlook object model to do the deletion. CDO will bypass the Deleted Items folder.
