OMG... What is the deal? All I am trying to do is submit a bug to
Microsoft. I've poked around for 20 minutes trying to find a URL that will
allow me to do that. Sheesh, I'm trying to HELP. Why make it so difficult?
Search, support, nada. Except that One Free E-mail Support thing which wants
me to install yet another ActiveX control I don't want and will burn up my
(apparently) ONLY free support slot. I don't need support. I just want to
If you are using pop/smtp AND use the Junk e-mail folder AND have "Leave a
copy of the message on the server" AND one or both of the "Remove from
server..." options the e-mail from the Junk e-mail folder DOES NOT get
removed from the server if you right click on Junk e-mail and choose "Empty
'Junk E-Mail' Folder". Apparently your "removing msgs from the server" in
this scenario is ONLY removed when the items are deleted from "Deleted
Items". While that, based on the description on the account settings dialog,
is technically correct I don't think it's what you meant to have happen, yes?
The work around, obviously, is to
not use the "Empty 'Junk E-Mail' Folder"
option but to select all the items in the Junk E-mail folder and delete them
(move them to "Deleted Items") then go about your "normal" purge procedure
(imediately, when Outlook closes, whatever).
