How do i delete a message on Microsoft outlook 7, for good. when i delete i just get a line thru the email.

Normally, when you delete a message in an IMAP account, it gets a line through it, until you completely eradicate the message by purging the Inbox. (Many consider this an irritating "feature".) The message does not go to the "Deleted Items" folder, the "Trash" or anywhere else. However, after purging, a message that was marked for deletion will be completely erased.
To permanently delete the items marked for deletion, do the following:
Click a folder in your IMAP e-mail account (e-mail account: The server name, user name, password, and e-mail address used by Outlook to connect to an e-mail service. You create the e-mail account in Outlook by using information provided by your administrator or Internet service provider (ISP).). On the Edit menu, point to Purge Deleted Messages. Do one of the following:
Click Purge Marked Items in "folder".
Only items marked for deletion in the folder that you are in are purged from the IMAP mail server.
Click Purge Marked Items in "e-mail account".
All items marked for deletion in any folder for this IMAP e-mail account are purged from the IMAP mail server.
Click Purge Marked Items in All Accounts.
All items marked for deletion in any folder for any IMAP e-mail account are purged from the IMAP mail server.

An e-mailitem ties up the laptop and cannot be deleted/removed. The laptop must be restarted when this happens in order to operate

You should also try turning off the remote content feature on your mail server. Start mail then in the task bar at top click mail> preferences> viewing.then uncheck the box as shown in the photo.

How can I remove an application from my macbook

Uninstall apps

You can uninstall apps you got from the Mac App Store, from other websites, or from discs. You can't uninstall apps that are part of OS X, such as Safari and Mail. Apps downloaded from the Mac App Store: Click the Launchpad icon in the Dock, hold down an app's icon until all the icons begin to jiggle, then click an app's delete button >. If you later want the app, you can reinstall it from the Mac App Store.

I have 3 mail accounts on my Outlook. two are working fine but my AOL account has a funny glitch all of a sudden. if i try to delete an email from my inbox it just puts a line through it but leaves it...


With the AOL account you have setup, it will not delete the email until you choose Edit>Purge>Purge Marked Items.

You can chage Outlook Settings so that you only see "undeleted" items by going to View>Current View>Hide Messages Marked for Deletion

You will however, from time to time, Purge the deleted items as advised above otherwise performance may deteriorate.

Hope that helps, Pls rate the solution

I keep getting junk mail from same address. How do I block if I own a MAC? I don't seem to be able to permanently block an email address.

This depends on what mail client you are using. In Mac OS X Mail, you need to define a rule:
  1. Open up mail and go Mail -> Preferences
  2. Click on the 'Rules' tab
  3. Click 'Add Rule'
  4. Using the editor, make it so that if the email is From the spam address (Which you put in the box), that email message is deleted.
  5. Press OK. Mail may ask you if you want to apply that rule to email messages already in your mailboxes - press yes if you want them automatically deleted.
There are similar steps if you are using a different mail client - if you are, let me know and I'll try to guide you through the steps.
Hope that helps, good luck!

Error -43 is the common "File Not Found" error.  This can also mean a folder is not found. (A Google search for "macintosh error codes" returns a complete list from Apple at  I don't know why it would say this unless the files really don't exist.
Dragging an item to the Trash doesn't usually require a password unless you are not the owner of the item.  This can occur when copying items from another user's account, for example.
Try selecting all of the items that you want to delete, hold down the Option key, and choose Show Inspector from the File menu.  In the Sharing & Permissions area at the bottom of the Inspector window, verify that you have permission to delete the files.  If not, click the lock icon, type an administrator's username and password, then change the Privilege to Read & Write (you might have to use the + icon to add yourself to the list before changing anything).
Close the Inspector window and delete the items.  This should do the trick.
