Hi - When I delete an email in an outlook folder it doesn't send it to deleted items so is deleted for good? How can I change this so that when I delete and email it goes to deleted items the same way as when you delete one from Inbox?

It's supposed to do that. What type of email account do you use? Are you deleting from mail folders or Outlook special folders? If you go to the folder list, then deleted items, do you see them? (Ctrl+6 to jump to the folder list, Ctrl+1 takes you back to the mail list.)

This is with an imap account? What are the settings for deleted items in File, Account Settings, double click on the account then More Settings - look on the advanced tab for the purge options.
