Is it possible to recover deleted items (Outlook 2003/Exchange 2003) to a folder other than the Inbox?  It seems to default to the Inbox and I have a user that accidentally deleted several hundred important messages from her Sent Items folder.  While we can use the Recover Deleted Items tool to get them back into the Inbox just find - we were hoping that there is a way to actually redirect the items back to the Sent Items folder.

Greetings:

Look at the dumpsteralwayson registry key.  this will allow you to recover in almost any folder.  And if you recover them, they should go back to the folder they were deleted from.

Open the registry.
Navigate to Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINESOFTWARE\Microsoft\Exchange\Client\Options.
Add a DWORD value named DumpsterAlwaysOn and set it to 1.
Restart Outlook to make the change take effect.

To recover emails, click and highlight the sent items folder (or any other folder) and then you can use the "Recover Deleted items" option under the Tools menu.
