OWA - Deleting messages

To delete a message, you can either:

  • Right-click on the message and select¬†delete


  • Click on the More Options button in the message pane and select delete from there.

If you delete your emails they can be recovered from your Deleted Items folder. Deleted items remain in this folder for a maximum of 30 days, or you can empty the Deleted Items folder yourself at any time. 

Once you have emptied your Deleted Items folder you then have a further 14 days in which you can recover the items you have emptied from the folder. After this period of time, your deleted items will be permanently removed and no longer recoverable.
