My deleted emails don't stay in my Deleted Items folder.

    My deleted emails don't stay in my Deleted Items folder.

    If I read an email from my inbox then delete it that email doesn't appear in
    my "Deleted Items" folder. They seem to automatically purge. If I delete an
    email that has not been opened then that unread email does show up in my
    "Deleted Items" folder. I can do a right-click find on the "Deleted Items"
    folder and it appears to find emails but I'm not sure. I need to reset
    something so all my emails stay in the "Deleted Items" folder until I choose
    to purge them. The only thing I have done in the last couple of weeks is to
    compact my emails but I have not changed any settings to make my emails auto
    purge.

    While viewing the Deleted Items Folder>View menu>current view>ensure that
    "show all messages is selected".

    I'm having the same problem. I checked the view and it is marked as "show all
    messges", but I still do not see any.

    Make sure you had the Deleted Items folder open when checking that
    setting, because each folder can have its own view setting.

    If no improvement, be sure you have installed Vista's SP1 and SP2
    updates, then try running the various repair functions in the WMUtil
    program: http://www.oehelp.com/WMUtil

    If still no improvement, upgrade to Windows Live Mail:
