How can I Permanently Delete emails using the Rules Wizard in Microsoft Exchange Outlook Web Access?

I am trying to use the "Create an Inbox Rule" feature in Outlook Web Access to permanently delete unwanted emails and I simply cannot find where to do it.  I can do it easily in Outlook but I need to be able to do it using Outlook Web Access.  Our organisation uses Microsoft Exchange 2010.  Please help if you can.

Hi Tintern,

I am afraid that it is not possible to create "Rules and Alerts" to delete unwanted emails in OWA, with Your Exchange 2010.
If You have any other questions regarding this, please feel free to ask.

Thanks,
D.

I agrre with Dejan.. It is not possible to create "Rules and Alerts" to delete unwanted emails in OWA. You need to delete them manually. Visit these posts given below for more help:

As Dejan has stated above, this is not possible through OWA as permanent deletes are client-side only. Your only options here are to either create a rule in Outlook to permanently delete the emails and leave Outlook open on your PC or create a server-side rule to delete the emails then use some sort of script (VBScript or PowerShell for example) to purge the emails from your Deleted Items folder.

You can set the rule to simply delete the emails and create a retention policy on Exchange 2010 to permanently delete emails older than certain date from the deleted items folder. Apply this policy to the user mailbox.
