I am unable to delete email from my Outlook inbox. The message has the appropriate line through it and right-click gives an "undelete" option, but the email stays in my inbox indefinitely. The account is impap (Gmail). Even more curious, if I go to a email client (iPhone), the deletions show there, but not in Outlook and not if I go to the server on the web. And, if I delete the email on the server, it is immediately reflected in Outlook.
 
Are you purging the folder? Outlook *should* be set to purge mail on folder change - you can check in Account Settings, double click on the account then more settings. Also, you can use a view that hides messages marked for deletion.
 
Thanks, Dian-- purging on folder change took care of it. What's curious is that I didn't have that checked before and messages would get deleted anyway after a sync with the server.
 
My guess is that you were using a view that hid messages marked for deletion before.
