You could put everyone's email in Litigation hold in Exchange. That would prevent deletions. Although your database will get massive.

Another solution may be to look into a journaling solution. This would allow employees to delete mail but a copy of every single mail sent and received would be saved in an alternate location. Great for litigation and e-discovery. This type of solution comes in all forms, such as a Barracuda Mail Archiver Appliance, or, a cloud solution like Mimecast.

If you are after an email trail for compliance then you have a few options.

Cheap option: Journal account to copy all incoming and out going emails

Secure Options: Smart host or 3rd party that archive all communications, i have use Mimecast in the past

Dictating how to use outlook would be down to user training.
