When I used to delete an email in Outlook it would just go to the deleted items without any further interaction.

Now when I try to delete an email it asks be to confirm deletion before sending it to the deleted items.

How do I get rid of the confirmation dialog?

Hello xy8088,

In Outlook 2003, you would select Tools|Options from the menu, then click the Other tab on the Options
dialog.  In the General section, click Advanced Options, and then unclick warn defore deleting items.

Regards,

Patrick
