Deleting Strikethrough Messages Marked For Deletion In Outlook

Outlook Problems

Problem With Outlook IMAP

Only an overworked employee in a workplace would truly appreciate the various features that Outlook provides. From calendars to task managers to providing you the ability to collaborate with various co-workers, Outlook cuts through all the essential grunt work and lets you focus on what is required. As much as people appreciate Outlook, the slightest hint of Outlook problems causes them to revert back their opinions and blame fingers on Microsoft.

While problems with the Exchange server are direct faults of Microsoft themselves, a majority of Outlook problems are due to some faulty actions by the users themselves. Apart from the bugs that are inherent in the software, some design issues have users sitting back and scratching their heads wondering why the designers would create such a design in the first place! One example design fault is inherent to the Outlook program accessing emails by the IMAP protocol. Although the protocol is powerful, it has few quirks that constantly irk us.

One such quirk is that emails that you have deleted by moving to the Trash folder or pressing Delete do not disappear. They are “Marked for deletion” but still visible until you purge the entire folder! Why display something we specifically stated we do not want? No idea! Fortunately, there is an option in Outlook using which you can hide the deleted emails until you purge the entire folder. Here’s how you do it.

  • Open Outlook using the Start menu.

    Reading Pane

    Deleting Messages In Outlook

  • Click on the View menu and then click on Current View. Inside this menu, you will be able to see the Hide Messages Marked for Deletion option. Click to enable this option.
  • If you are using Outlook 2003, click on View and then select Arrange By. Select Hide Messages Marked for Deletion option that is listed inside the Current View menu.
  • To re-enable the preview menu, click on View menu again and then click on Reading Pane. From the list of options, click on whichever desired setting that you want.

Although not inherently one of the Outlook problems, this useful workaround gets rid of the supposedly “deleted” messages.
