The Deleted Items folder will be emptied every time you exit Outlook.

Depending on the server configuration, then messages will be held on the server for a pre-determined period after deletion and can be recovered if needed, usually within a 30-day time period.  After that would involve the  use of tapes and recovering data from backups.

What are you trying to achieve in your testing?

If you set the retention to 0, you won't be able to recover mail if deleted and the deleted items emptied.

The setting won't kick in until you mount /dismount the store or restart the Microsoft information store service.

Here is Microsoft's Guide to recovering a Disconnected Mailbox:

If you have set the retention on the store to 0 days, you may have destroyed any chance to recover the mailbox without resorting to a backup.

Replication may not kick in until overnight processes kick off.
