All of us use Outlook for checking our mails, once these messages are read they get moved to a folder. If you are using an IMAP account, your mail doesn’t get deleted. In a way this is really helpful because this gives you room for correcting your deletion list. Now if ever you want to delete those mails, you can either do it manually or automatically.
So how do you purge deleted messages automatically? Simple my friend, all you have to do is follow these steps to configure your Outlook setting wizard.
The Outlook setting steps are unbelievably simple.
Without further a due, let’s get straight into the Outlook setting procedure.
Modify your Outlook setting to purge deleted messages automatically
- To start off with configuring the Outlook setting wizard, go to the “Start” menu and open your Outlook program from the “Programs” list.
- To continue with the configuration of your Outlook setting, open a desired folder in your IMAP account that you want to set up for automatic purging.
- From the menu, click on the option called “Edit” and select the “Purge” button. From the drop down menu select the option called “Purge Options…”
- To continue with editing your Outlook setting, click on the check box next to the option called “Purge items when switching folder while online”. This particular option has to be checked because the Outlook program will only purge automatically when you are online. Now if your messages are deleted while you were offline, then the program purges these mails the next time you go online. The procedure is almost complete.
- All you have to do to complete modifying your Outlook setting is to click on the OK button.
That should be all the help you will need.
