We’re all familiar with how easy it is to let our email accounts get large. With all the attachments and messages we receive on a daily basis, it is important to delete unneeded mail to keep your mailbox in top condition. If you’re always forgetting to take the final step of emptying your Deleted Items folder, you can have Outlook do it automatically when you close the program.
- From the File menu, choose Options.
- Click Advanced on the left-hand column, select Empty the Deleted Items folders when exiting Outlook, and click OK.
- From the Tools menu, choose Options.
- On the Other tab, select Empty the Deleted Items folder upon exiting and click OK.
