Really Noddy-level question about deleting messages from Outlook Express

(8 Posts)

Sorry in advance for my pathetic levels of understanding in relation to all things technical. Love technology btw - not a luddite - just haven't learnt how to lots of things yet ....

Is there any easier/quicker way of getting rid of e-mails from the "Deleted Items" file in Outlook Express rather than highlighting a few at a time and pressing the delete button? Is it possible to delete the contents of the file in one fell swoop?

I thank you!

You can make it delete all emails in 'deleted items' each time you close down OE.

Look in the tools Menu on the Maintenence tab.

change your setting to empty the deleted folder automatically when you close Outlook
