I would like to delete a task when it's complete. I don't want go into each

task to delete it. I want it click once and it's gone. I do not want to keep

complete items taking up un-necessary space. How do I get Outlook to delete,

completely delete ALL finished tasks automatically? I know there's no setting

for this, but I was wondering if there were steps to create a rule to

accomplish this. I use Outlook 2007 and when I click on Tools, Rules ..., I

get a wizard and no way to start with a totally blank rule set so I can

select tasks and not messages. Any help for this?

Instead of marking the item as complete, press the Delete button. You can

even do this in the Reminders window.
