    Delete Messages from the Deleted Items Folder in Outlook

    I had a need to "archive" deleted items after a certain time period. The Outlook archive function works on all folders EXCEPT the Deleted Items Folder, so I came up with this:
    One spreadsheet to rule them all. One spreadsheet to find them. One spreadsheet to bring them all and at corporate, bind them.

    A picture is worth a thousand words, but a sample spreadsheet is more likely to be worked on.

    If I right-click on the Delete folder and select Properties, then the AutoArchive tab, I have the same option for autoarchive that are available for any other folder.

    Are you saying that it's there but it doesn't work, or that you do not have this option?

    And what happens when you actually attempt to archive the messages? I had mine set up to delete messages older than 9 months. It didn't work.

    Archiving seems to work on all folders except the deleted items folder. Besides this app gives the user some other options on cleaning up the folder.
