Windows 7: Outlook 2010 won't store deleted items locally only on webserver

Windows 7

You have to go to the delete option and then hit the delete button. Then you have to ensure that you want to delete it and hit the yes button. After this it will be deleted.

Thanks, but the issue isn't being able to delete items, it's when you delete something having it go into a trash folder or deleted items folder so that while the item is no longer in your inbox, it is not yet permanently deleted, just in case I realize I might need it afterall. Right now it does not do that, the emails are permanently deleted immediately (in Outlook, locally on the computer). What I was mentioning previously was, while most people don't use the option, when I am not at my computer, I can still access my emails by going to the email server website on any computer, log in and see my emails. And ironically anything I deleted while reading emails via outlook on my computer is actually sitting in the trash folder on the website. So I couldn't figure out why the deletes were being placed in the trash folder on the server's website, but not locally on my computer in my outlook's trash folder (even though it was selected to do so correctly).

Thanks again, for the assistance
