Re: Question On Outlook Message Deletion

Check if you got this option check or tick or not.

When replying to a message that is not in the Inbox, save the reply in the same folder

If you did, it will sort with the same conversation like in a normal gmail, if you delete it, it will be gone.


I am not using the latest outlook despite I am on office365 but you can give it a try.

Alternatively, you might be using gmail in imap mode, so you are just deleting the all mail side of things.

I would suggest, create a mail rules with any mails you cc a copy to yourself to have a copy to a specific folder.. that will allow you to have a copy always.

Subject: Question On Outlook Message Deletion


Hello, everyone.


Occasionally, I will copy myself on an Outlook e-mail message, because the message is very important, and I want to be sure it has been sent.


Recently, I have noticed that if I delete the received message copy from my inbox, it is also deleted from my sent file.


Is there a way I can configure Outlook so that the message remains in my sent file, even though it has been deleted from my inbox?


I’m using the Office 365 version of Outlook 2016 with Windows 10 and the latest build of Jaws 2019.


Thank you!
