In Outlook I always run with shortcuts in the left hand pane. This includes a shortcut to the Deleted folder. ALWAYS I have had the option when right clicking "Empty Folder". Now I upgrade to 2010 and "Empty Folder" is missing on the menu when I right click.

Is there a way of getting it back?

Apparently this is "by design" which could mean either Microsoft forgot to put it in, or that the support engineer is clueless. It isn't available in Outlook 2013 either, so I guess it is not coming back. Sorry, not what you wanted to hear...

Thanks for the prompt response. What a pain in the a**. I can't think of one single reason that would justify it so I'm sure your latter suggestion is apposite.

Microsoft gives, and then they take away without warning. Like in Office 2013 all the VBA help is online now via MSDN, and most of the links don't work. In Office 2010 and below, the offline help was awesome. Now it's just generic, unhelpful, unproductive verbiage. As you say, a pain in the a$$

I can't believe that their developments are informed by focus groups of regular business users, that's for sure.

I've left feedback on the MS site. Don't suppose it will make any difference.
