Windows 7: Outlook 2010 with IMAP

Outlook 2010 with IMAP

Hi all
Is there anyway to make the Delete function in Outlook 2010 work the same as in Outlook 2007 (and earlier) with IMAP.

In Outlook 2007 delete doesn't actually DELETE the email but just puts a line through the items. Mail is actually deleted when you go to ==>edit===>PURGE.

In Outlook 2010 it deletes the mail straight away (like POP3 defaults).

I prefer the old method as I often use more than one computer for email and need to ensure that I've copied all relevant emails to local folders on the relevant machines before physically deleting email from the server.

Having a line through the items makes it easy to quickly check whether I've "deleted" something I need on another machine.

I can see lots of people usuing corporate email sytems with remote laptops / "roaming machines" coming to grief with this issue.

Cheers

Hi there
Looks like it -- thanks

Trouble is with this stuff is there are SO many options etc to look for -- would be nice to have an install with "maintain existing options" or in the case of a new install an option to "default to 2007 options" .

Cheers
