Deleting a Message
Delete messages you no longer need or want to see in your Inbox or mail folders.
In the message list, right-click on the message and click Delete.
In the message list, select the message (it will be highlighted), then click Delete button within Home tab.
If a message is open in its own window, click Message > Delete.
When a message is deleted, it's moved to the "Deleted Items" folder.
If you want to bypass the Deleted Items folder and permanently delete a message, press Shift+Delete. You won't have an opportunity to change your mind later and recover the message.
