Operating System Version: Windows XP
Problem Application Name & Version: Outlook Express 6

How do I set up Outlook Express so that when I delete an item from my inbox it goes into a deleted items or trash folder, rather than being deleted permanently?  I use my university imap server and they said they can't help me.  I know that most e-mail boxes work this way.

Thanks!

In Outlook Express click Tools, Options and then the Maintenance tab.
Uncheck the following boxes :
Empty Messages from "Deleted Items" folder on exit.
Purge deleted messages when leaving IMAP folders.
Delete Read message bodies in Newsgroups.
Check the following boxes :
Compact messages in the background.
Delete News messages 5 days after being downloaded.

Thanks, but it was already set up that way.  Any other suggestions?

In OE go to File/Folder/New and give the file a name.When you have finished with your email right click on its header in the recieve window and in the drop menu click "Move to Folder" then click the name of you new folder and it will be stored in there.
