Wastebasket and delegations in Outlook XP

Filed under: Outlook — Tags: , , — Michael @ 13:46

Per default, deleted items are always moved in the “Deleted Items”-folder of the user who deleted them. This is in fact not optimal when you have set up delegations.
This behavior can be changed by editing a key in the registry of the delegate:

Windows Registry Editor Version 5.00

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Microsoft\Office\10.0\Outlook\Options\General]
"DelegateWastebasketStyle"=dword:00000004"

Possible values for this DWORD are:

4 = Deleted items are moved to the wastebasket of the absent user
8 = Deleted items are moved to the wastebasket of the delegate

(this was found in the great MSXFAQ, more detailed information can be found here)
