Warn user when deleting messages from inbox

I have a user who swears that their email is being deleted by a hacker or outside influence.  On a number of occasions 20 or 30 emails have mysteriously been relocated to their Deleted Items folder.

They are using Outlook 2007 connected to an Exchange 2007 server running on Windows Server 2008.  We have checked the firewall, checked mailbox permissions, checked for mail rules, checked for scheduled tasks, performed exhaustive av/malware scans on the PC, given them a new complex password and scoured the event logs for evidence of outside interference.

It happened again today.  Quite often I have walked into this user's office and found a large stack of printouts or books sitting on the keyboard and I now suspect that the delete button is the culprit!

Is there a way to turn on a warning for EVERY delete action in Outlook 2007?  I can see an option to warn the user before permanently deleting items but not for general or accidental delete actions.

I am not aware of any built-in way to accomplish this.  The only solution I know of is to create an add-in or a script that traps the BeforeDelete event.  The code would prompt the user to confirm each delete before actually deleting anything.
