Windows 7: Disable outlook deleted message recovery

Disable outlook deleted message recovery

Does anyone know how to DISABLE the thing where after you empty the deleted folder it gives the option to recover those messages.

These a way to do that but the new outlook preview sucks and I cant figure out how/find where to disable it.

EDIT: The exact message is "Need to recover email? Retrieve message that were recently deleted or emptied from this folder". I want that message to go away.

I found - Prevent the recovery of deleted messages but thats for the OLD outlook but Microsoft has gone and screwed everything up AGAIN and those options no longer exist on the new outlook.

All I see for options is the pictures below

Also the "Empty the Deleted Items folder when I sign out" option will not work either because after they are removed from the deleted for they are still able to be recovered. There should be NO OPTION FOR RECOVERY.

This is absolutely ridiculous. The way it seems right now is you have to delete messages THREE TIMES.
-Read message
-Delete message
-Empty Deleted Folder
-Purge message from deleted message recovery folder

Messages should not have to be purged or deleted 3 friggin times. DELETE MEANS DELETE.

Also noticing now that there is no more drag & dropping messages to there appropriate folder. 1 down click and the message opens. I used to be able drop drag inbox to specific folders to the left.

For those with more than one account for different purposes I notice the account name at the top right of the screen has been removed so there is no way to know what acct you are logged into.

And not surprisingly I still haven't figured out how to remove the message retrieval option.

Outlook is still giving me the option to recover deleted message and its been 3 months now. Anyone? Ideas to disable??

This is just on the new outlook. The old outlook gives me option to disable on a different email account. I need disable message recovery on this account too.
