sounds like the outlook account has delivery reciepts turned on in the options
This is because the sender of the email has requested a read receipt. Depending on the Outlook version you are using, when you open the mail (or mark as read) it may prompt you to ask if you want to send the read receipt. If you delete the email without opening/mark as read, the sender gets the email above stating that the email was deleted without reading it.

So, if your Outlook version allows it, mark the email as read (CTRL-Q normally) and say "Do not send a read receipt" or open the mail (generating a read receipt) and then delete it
