I'm running Windows 98 and Outlook Express 6. When I delete an email from my inbox it disappears completely rather than going into my Trash folder. I've looked in the Tools/Options area but didn't see anything in there that I could check that would help me. My email resides on an IMAP server instead of POP3. Not sure if that makes a difference or not but thought I'd mention it just in case.

Hi opmarkwv,

I runned Outlook for many years in a company. I got my mails from a IMAP server.
When I deleted a mail, this one was moved to the trash folder.
And as soon I closed Outlook, the trash folder was emptied on the server.

Deke, neither box is checked in my settings. What I do find puzzling is if I bring up Netscape Mail and delete items from there, the deleted items not only show up in the Netscape trash folder but will also be in the Outlook Express Trash folder the next time I open it. I just can't seem to get the deleted mail to go there from Outlook Express.
