Is there a way to disable the Delete All option when you do a right click on the inbox folder?

Thanks

Just dont give the users full access on the mailbox man.. Instead of using a security group or a adding them directly to the mailbox. Give 1 user (yourself or the head person in that team) delegate access on the mailbox and folders. But dont give full permissions..

Either that or auto forward a duplicate to a second mailbox as a spare..

There appears to be no method to do this without major modifications to outlook. But do you know that outlook can recover deleted data for up to 30 days using recover?

so unless someone is silly enough to delete it twice you should be ok :)

Thanks for your answer.  Would you have any idea on how to do these major modifications in outlook.  Would it be possible to do this using group policy.  I have managed to disable the delete icon and shortcut key using group policy.

No as far as I have investigated (that's a lot) there is no reg key associated with it.
there is no GPO that can be applied
There is no application that has been developed.

It would be a custom job by a coder if at all possible.
Is there a particular reason you would like to accomplish this task.? perhaps with a little more information we could suggest some kind of workaround for you.

Yes there is a reason.  An email account has to be created and it will be shared by four people in our organization.  No one should be able to delete the emails.  Using group policy I have managed to disable the delete button and shortcut.  What I haven't been able to stop is delete of emails using Delete key on the keyboard and the right click on inbox and delete all option.

Thanks
