    Outlook - automatic deletion of Junk email

    Hi there

    question for those "Officy" types

    On Outlook there's a junk email folder -- I can direct a whole heap of stuff to this junk folder - but is there any way these emails in that folder can get deleted automatically -- doesn't have to be immediately -- say every 60 mins or so -

    Otherwise it's a tedious task having to delete manually every day -- I must have offers to buy every single item in the amazon catalog, every stock market "get rich quick" plans and a whole slew of other junk.

    Email these days is rapidly becoming a bit of a "rubbish" tool when so much junk gets sent.

    Hi Jimbo45

    You should be able to right click on junk folder, properties, AutoArchive Tab, then Archive with these settings. Change time frame and right at bottom is permanently delete option.

    This is very similar to post #2, with some screenshots to show the panels.
