    Question for Computer Wizards Outlook 2007 inbox email delete

    Since the XP box decided to be unusable I moved up to the very modern windows 7 box. In that one a friend set up the email and I notice when I delete emails in the inbox instead of deleting them it leaves them there but puts a line through them. In the sent box if I delete they just delete. Dont get why and cant find a way to change that, DId the Google thing first and find nothing to do with the line through the email when you press delete. I just wont take the email out of the inbox. '

    Reminds me of "im not dead yet" in Austin Powers or Monty Python.

    I suspect that you are using IMAP settings for your email account, not POP3. Using IMAP, when you "delete" an email, it will put a red line through it and leave it in your inbox. To change this, try the instructions in this article
