It is the Deleted Items folder. Below is the original post by the OP . He mistakenly called WM as OE
For some reason my delete folder is not allowing me to delete any mail. When
I right click on the folder and select delete mail the next pop up is the one
asking me if I really want to delete and I'll check off yes. The box closes
and nothing is deleted. It's the same thing when selecting a single or
multiple items to delete same pop up and same nothing happens. Anyone know
