How to delete messages in outlook without turning back in inbox?

Asked By 0 points N/A Posted on -


I use Outlook for my e-mail account and I’m wasting a lot of time deleting the messages; every time I delete a message that’s open, by default, Outlook takes me back to Inbox.

Does anyone know if there’s any way to make it go to the previous or the next in the list when deleting the message?

This does happen if the messages you've just delete is still saved in the webmail server. When you delete these files in your Outlook, you are deleting these messages on your computer hard drive but the copy of these messages is still saved in webmail.

What needs to be done is to synchronized your Outlook and webmail. If you delete messages on Outlook, you need to delete those messages also on webmail server. The settings can be configure on your Outlook, so, when you delete messages on email client it'll be deleted also on webmail.
