Deleted Items Folder: Where Are The Deleted Messages

by RayPaula / March 15, 2010 1:11 AM PDT

Hi, Could someone please tell me why my deleted messages are deleted from the computer instead of going to my Deleted Items Folder? I "do not" have the box checked from Menus - Options - Advanced - Maintenance - Empty messages from the "Deleted Items" folder on exit. Your help would be most appreciated. Thanks, Ray

Knaok Knock, Anyone Out There?
by RayPaula / March 15, 2010 7:16 AM PDT

After surfing around and clicking on about everything, I did notice something. Upon clicking on either one of my email account panes, I can go into that particular "Deleted Items" folder and the deleted email is there. The only place that my deleted emails don't go is in the Deleted Items under Storage Folders. Is there a way to force deleted items from both accounts to go there? A deleted folder would be nice under the Quick View as well. Thanks for all your help, Ray

Storage Folders...

It's essentially a place for emails that are not synchronized with the server. Since your deleted emails are synchronized with the Hotmail servers, they should not appear in that subdirectory. It is also not possible to add custom folder aggregations under Quick Views.
