Trick: Deleting in Outlook

Yeah, deleting objects in Outlook is simple, you’ve done that before.

No, probably you haven’t. You’ve moved items into the recycle bin. That’s a good choice in most cases because you can undo that. In some cases, like very large attachements, duplicates or spam you may want to delete the items permanently.

The trick is quite simple. Don’t use the “Del” key. Use “Shift+Del”. That way the selected items are gone forever. (But please only use that trick if you’re really sure you want to delete that. Please.)
