can you be a little more specific as to your questions..

For email tracking you are very limited in all client apps.. you can request a deliver and read receipt but the person receiving your email can block this..

yes.. if you right click on the "deleted items" folder in outlook then choose properties

now click on the autoarchive tab.. click on the button "archive folder using these settings".. now pick the time frame and choose the last button permanently delete and you will have it..
