I would like to create an email rule in Outlook 2007 that would permanently delete the email in one easy step (or less) after being viewed. Is that possible?
(We have our phone system send voicemail to email and we don't want to store those big files.)

Hi, sstabb.
No, that's not possible.  Rules only work when an item is sent or received.  They cannot be applied to changes in a message (e.g. changing from unread to read).
