We use a number of mail enabled public folders as general mailboxes that multiple people can view and reply to emails as well as delete spam. The trouble is occasionally someone deletes the entire folder and it has to be recovered. How can I stop this? I cant  seem to see an appropriate option under Properties -> Permissions

That is because there isn't an option.

By allowing users to delete the content, you actually allow them to delete the folder itself.
The closest you can get is allowing the user to delete just their own content, but if these are folders containing content that is coming from outside then this isn't going to be suitable.

You would be better off with a shared mailbox - they can't delete those.
