Not sure I understand 100% your question. When you delete an email in Outlook, it will be moved to your deleted items folder. When you delete it from the deleted items folder, it will remain for 15-30 days if you're connected to a corporate email server how that setting is set by the system administrator.

If you're using Outlook at home and NOT connected to Microsoft exchange, your email is usually stored in a PST file and you can recover the emails however it's not easy.

Here is a guide for corrupting a PST file and recovering the email using SCANPST - http://www.groovypost.com/forum/microsoft-office/how-to-corupt-an-outlook-pst-file-to-recover-delete-email-t95682.html

Hope that helps.

For outlook, i think it stays there till you manually delete the emails from outlook deleted items folder

 

Yup - If you don't delete it, it will never vanish.

If you've permanently deleted an item in Microsoft Outlook or Outlook on the web (formerly known as Outlook Web App), the item is moved to a folder ( Recoverable Items > Deletions) and kept there for 14 days, by default. You can change how long items are kept, up to a maximum of 30 days.

      I have Office 365 Home. I can't send email using the Outlook app because it tells me I have no certificate? My computer has Windows 10 Pro. Outlook is configured using Exchange. I have tried reconfiguring it but it will not let me change the settings. Do I need to purchase a certificate or how do I change the settings? I have always been able to send email till I installed Office 365 Home.
      Thanks! Any help will be appreciated.

      Hi all,
       
      I updated my outlook to 2016 recently but now i can't open old emails in unicode format. The email in unicode 2016 i can open them but the old ones ( 2013 ) i can't. I try browse and found the outlook 2016 but no luck.
       
      Can someone tell me how can i open the emails in unicode format ( 2013 outlook version ) ?
       
      Regards,
      Alina

      A feature I use all the time in Microsoft Outlook 2013 (Office 2013) is the ability to open a calendar invite during a meeting and click - Meeting Notes. See screenshot from Outlook 2013.

      After installing Office 2016, when I open up outlook I no longer have that option in the calendar. It's just missing.
       
      Is anyone else having this issue or is it just me?
       
      Hopefully this is just an issue with the Preview and it will get fixed later during full release.

      I have tried other Forums and no one seems to have a fix for this, but I just keep on trying.
       
      I am having an issue with the “Junk” filter in Microsoft Office Outlook 2010. I am unable to stop some email from being filtered and moved to the “Junk” filter. My mail is filtered prior to my getting it, so I WANT IT COMPLETELY OFF! I went to the Junk drop down on the Home menu bar and selected Junk E-mail Options. I click on the lowest setting being . . . No Automatic Filtering. Mail from blocked senders is still moved to the Junk E-mail Folder. And I have no one listed in the Block Senders list, so that should mean, nothing is filtered. But, a small portion of my e-mail still ends up there. Ahhh – I and can’t stop it.
