Delete Emails permanently
Need the filter option to permanently delete a message - not even put in Deleted Items.
Here’s an idea-
How about making all of the selected emails permanently disappear the moment I hit DELETE, instead of having the same emails reappear over and over and over and over again?

I would like to have the option of deleted emails NOT GOING to recovery folder. when I delete an email, I want it gone, I do not want to have to go to recover, then delete again.
Pretty self explanatory. I’m so sick of deleting the thousands of email messages over and over and over and over and over again...
Swip settings so you can swip left or right and toggle 3 actions.... Archive, delete, and permanently delete with just one swip.
Deleted emails should not have to be done twice, it’s a waste of time or at least give us the option to permanently delete the whole folder at once
Ability to shift + delete item('s) to permanently delete items.
The new outlook.live UI has taken this out. Please put it back!!
I have too many spams and hacking/virus schemes. The problem is that I have to delete messages from Junk Email and then also delete them from Deleted items. And there are so many so I can't do that by one click. It's wasting my time. I do not know even how to stop all those scamers sending me emails? I don't know what's the problem is? If this won't be resolved, I'd must go to another email service company.
Here's an idea, don't make me delete emails SEVERAL times just to clear out my inbox. I've been doing this for hours now! If I search for emails from a certain sender and delete them, that should be it. PERIOD. WTF?!!!
For deleting items from my hotmail account, it would be great if I only had to do it one time! I delete an item once it goes to the deleted box, then I have to delete it from that box but only 10 at a time, then I have to delete another 10, then I have to delete the rest of them 10 at a time until I've gotten thru the 40 or 50 emails. Whew! I like the Yahoo mailbox much better. It's streamlined.

Imagine not having to DELETE your DELETED files.
Instead save 2 steps and simply EMPTY TRASH. :) WoW
Current system is that deleted emails stay for 30 days in trash and another 30 days from where they can be recovered, so in total 60 days after you delete them from your inbox. The other option is to clear the deleted folder, but they still remain in your recover deleted mail folder. If you want to delete from here, its very irritating as you have to choose individual mails and delete them. If you have 500 mails, you'll go crazy. I request the developers to create an option to bypass this very long method to permanently delete mails..
But I delete all my message and my pictures and i want to get back but still I never get back how I can get back

I am able to delete mails with search option. every time when i delete the mail with search option , at first it shows like its deleted and gone. but when i re-search it again. the same deleted mail are listing again. i had tried it like 5-6 times, i have also refreshed the page.its still showing

What would be nice would be to have a "Delete Forever" button so stuff that I know I never want to see again could be deleted with one click. As it is, one must always do a follow-up by going to the Deleted box to permanently delete mail. One thing: If you do this, please DO NOT put such a button right next to the regular Delete button. This will avoid tripping up people (like me) who sometimes click faster than they ought to do.
P.S. Love the Junk Email box. It really separates out the garbage for me. Not so crazy about the "Other" setup in the regular inbox.

You know how you save emails on line after your users say to delete them. then we have to go purge them.
it would be nice if you would alow your users to set their preferences to not do that.
I am a private type person and when i say to delete i mean delete.
I don't know why but to purge in that online save feature you also make it hard to delete all emails as a group, why?
Also i get a ton of junk mail with long numerical email addresses, why not give us a filter to not accept them type of emails even in our junk box?
The smart people at Microsoft could fix this in a second, but i have not seen it yet.
Take Care, Bill
give option to delete mail permanently or one click option to purge unwanted mail.99% people need it,as all mail is just creeping up without any solution
A quick suggestion. Get rid of all the sub trash categories. Just make it when you delete something it goes straight to the Deleted Items category. It makes the whole processes of checking e-mails faster. Instead having to go to all the trash folders and deleting everything in there, then going to the Deleted Items folder then also deleting them there. Thanks for your time.
Now Deleted Junk Mails are going to the Deleted Items Folder and mixed up with the other mails, which I don't like at all. Junk Mails should be wiped out and not be mixed with something else.
I'm getting so much spam that I would like a simple "permanently delete all" option in the spam folder, without passing to my deleted items. One click, gone forever.
