    Yes! I would like the option to delete all automatically within a few days instead of 30 days. Let there be an option where the user can decide how long to keep any junk in there - from zero "and delete immediately" to a year, if they want. Thanks!

    In outlook.com Microsoft is doing a terrible job at stopping spam/junk mail BEFORE it even gets into my mail in the first place...like with my two gmail accounts of many years I have NO SPAM AT ALL!!! I might get some every few months for a day or two then they squash it at the back end. They are on top of it. You guys are not!
    Yes, it goes to the Junk Mail Folder, but so do a few legitimate emails so I still need to check all that garbage and it is highly obnoxious!

    I have given endless feedback suggestions to outlook.com help assistants but nothing changes and their standard suggestions I already do anyhow. You can't block every junk email as they change each address individually, plus outlook.com puts them in the Junk Folder anyway!

    So, I want the option to delete junk mail and any mail immediately and automatically, and not have it sit in backup for 30 days either. Also this same option to have my deleted stuff (and Junk) self delete at my choice of time! Like put into an drop down box with: Immediately / 1 day / 3 days / whatever.
    Make it MY choice please!!!

    And lastly here, any idea why my "right click" on an unopened email does not give me a "Message Source" option??? I used to use that feature to check an email's source when I was unsure if I should click on it or not. It was very handy - but disappeared when Outlook changed a year or two back.
    Could you bring back this feature please.

    Thank you. MM

    Agreed! It takes up space for something I never use! P.S. I would also like the ability to delete the Archive Folder or at least re-name it!

    Agreed, as they then sit in the "Recover" aspect of Deleted for 30 days!
    Plus give an option to NOT have the recover option last that long. Give a choice to delete all permanently, immediately, forever...or at least the amount of days selected by the user (me). Thanks!
