Deleting Outlook folders/emails, etc?

Not open for further replies.

Dan Calic

I have Outlook 2010 on a Win 7 64 bit OS.

When I delete an Outlook folder or individual email it goes to the trash. When the trash gets emptied or I delete every email in a folder is it still available somewhere on my computer for someone to find if they wanted to? If this is the case is there a way to delete emails or folders in a way that they cannot be found?

Once an email or any outlook entity is deleted from the outlook trash or deleted items, it is permanently deleted from the computer. It is as if a file has been deleted from the recycle bin of the computer.

So, the deleted data cannot be recovered.
