Hello,

The easiest way to delete items on your PC is by moving your pointer on it, then right click on it and select delete.

Remember though that when you do this, it is still on your PC, and if you want to get rid of it totally, just go and double-click on the recycle bin on your desktop, then delete the same file from it.

Alternatively, if you want to delete files COMPLETELY without letting it pass through recycle bin at all, when you are deleting it, just press and hold down the shift key while clicking on delete.

This deletes the item totally from your system and it will not even pass through the recycle bin.

Please be careful when you are using this 2nd option because any file you delete this way has left your PC TOTALLY.

Hope this helps.
Goodluck

How do you empty the sentbox in incredimail?


?

A: The 'Deleted Items' folder contains the email messages deleted from your other folders. It is recommended that you empty the 'Deleted Items'folder from time to time, to avoid the build up of old and unnecessary email, which may slow down your email environment.

To empty the 'Deleted Items' folder, simply right-click the folder and select 'Empty 'Deleted Items' Folder'. If the 'Deleted Items' folder is not emptied, please follow these steps:
  1. Right-click the IncrediMail Tray Icon (orange envelope), located in the lower right corner (near the computer clock), and select 'Exit'.
  2. Windows 2000 or XP users: Browse to the following location:

    C:\Documents and Settings\Your Profile(Logon Name)\Local Settings\Application Data\IM\Identities\{Long Number}\Message Store



    Windows 98 or ME users: Browse to the following location:

    C:\Windows\Application Data\IM\Identities\{Long Number}\Message Store
  3. Delete the 'Deleted Items.imm' and the 'Deleted Items.imh' files.
  4. Open IncrediMail. Next time you wish to empty your 'Deleted Items' folder, simply right-click the folder and select 'Empty 'Deleted Items' folder'.

Recovering deleted items in Outlook 2003 and 2007


If you accidently deleted items like Emails, contacts, calendar, tasks, etc from your mailbox using Outlook, you can recover them as they are first transferred to the Deleted Items folder of that mailbox. But even if you delete them from the Deleted Items folder you can still recover them. This feature is enabled by default in Outlook 2007 but if you are using 2003 then you'll have to modify System registry.
Enabling recovery of deleted items in Outlook 2003
1. Start Registry Editor(Regedt32.exe).
2. Locate and click the following key in the registry
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWAREMicrosoftExchangeClientOptions
3. On the Edit menu, click Add Value, and then add the following registry value:
Value name: DumpsterAlwaysOn
Data type: DWORD
Value data: 1
4. Close the Registry Editor.
Now when you start Microsoft Outlook 2003 you'll be able to see a new option- Recover Deleted Items in the tools menu.
Recovering deleted items in Outlook 2007:
1. In the folder from where you deleted the item, or in the Deleted Items folder, click
2. Recover Deleted Items on the Tools menu.
Click an item and then click Recover Selected Items
NOTE: If an item doesn't appear in the Recover Deleted Items dialog box then you can't recover it.

Tip

Permanently delete



If you are sure that you do not want an item, you can bypass the Recycle Bin and permanently delete it.

Select the item you want to delete. Hold the 'Shift' key down and hit the 'Delete' key. The item bypasses the Recycle Bin and is permanently deleted.

How to Retrieve Shift-Deleted Items in Microsoft Outlook


A. ON THE CLIENT COMPUTER

REGISTRY EDITING
Warning: If you use Registry Editor incorrectly, you may cause serious problems that may require you to reinstall your operating system. Backup the registry first.


By default, the Recover Deleted Items functionality is only enabled on the Deleted Items folder in a user's private folders; items that are hard deleted cannot be recovered. To enable the Recover Deleted Items functionality on mail folders other than Deleted Items (for example, for Sent Items, Drafts, Outbox and Inbox folders), you must make the following changes to the registry:


1. Start Registry Editor (Regedt32.exe).


2. Locate and click the following key in the registry:
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Exchange\Client\Options


3. On the Edit menu, click Add Value, and then add the following registry value:
Value name: DumpsterAlwaysOn
Data type: DWORD
Value data: 1


4. Quit Registry Editor.

On MS OUTLOOK


Select the MAILBOX folder, go to INBOX folder.
On the Tools menu, select Recover Deleted Items. (This option will not be available unless you are currently viewing the contents of your Deleted Items folder.)


From the pop-up window, click the message you want to recover. (Note that the date shown next to the message subject is the date that you emptied it from your Deleted Items folder, and not the date of the original message. To see the original message date, you may need to scroll to the right or expand the pop-up window.)
Click the Recover Selected Items button.


The items will be returned to your Deleted Items folder, and then you can move them to other folders.

Note: Deleted items are only available for recovery for a limited period which is based on IRRI exchange server retention policy configuration. You may check it with Kuya Boy.



B. FOR EXCHANGE SERVER ADMIN

CONFIGURING DELETED ITEM RECOVERY


Exchange Server Configuration


1. In the Exchange Server Administrator program, open the properties of the Private Information Store, and select the General tab.


2. Set the number of days that you want messages saved after they have been deleted.

NOTE: You can also set the messages not to be deleted until a backup has been done. You can override this by setting the retention time on individual mailboxes in the Properties for the mailbox by changing the


Deleted Items Retention time on the Limits tab.

Windows live mail is on both my pc and laptop and both are on a LAN aat home. when i delete a msg on the pc it does not delete it on the laptop and hundreds build up. how to erase all at once sted of one...


You can use the keyboard shortcut keys shift+ select and ctrl + select to select numerous entries from a list, then delete the entire list between selection points or all of the selected entries.In other words, hold down the ctrl or shift key while you select items you wish to delete from the list, continue to hold it until you choose the next item(s) (for ctrl), or the last item in a continuous series (for shift), then release the shift or ctrl key and choose delete to delete the selected items.
There is however, a setting in the email options that allows you to have mail items that are deleted from your pc to be also deleted from the server. In other words, they will be permanently removed from your email account, both in your local storage folders in your pc, and also deleted from the online storage servers that your computer connects to to download your email...If you choose the option that these messages are deleted from the online server, then when your laptop connects online and synchronizes the inbox with the online server, the messages should also be removed and the inbox should look like your pc's inbox.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

Message sending failed


Reason of this Problem:
--------------------------------------
Actually it happens due to mem full in Sent Items with Pending Status.

Solution:
--------------
Just delete one message from Sent Items.
Better if you delete all messages from your Sent Items, as you will face again this problem if again Sent Items fulls with messages having status Pending.
