Outlook 2010/Exchange 2013 - Recover deleted items - just back into deleted folder?

I've tested and this is what it does for me. Any items recovereable get put back into deleted items folder regardless of whether the items are normal deleted and then deleted from deleted items or shift-deleted straight away?

BUT, I've seen it where recover deleted items has recovered items directly back into the inbox. Under what conditions is this even possible?

That is impossible. The original folder gets lost on delete, so recovering is always done into Deleted Items.

In our case it is different. If items are shift deleted from Inbox and then recovered then they get recovered back in Inbox.  If items are deleted normally then its moved into Deleted Items folder and if deleted from there and recovered then items are recovered into Deleted Items folder.

There is a discussion on the topic in a thread at the following link:

Niten is correct. The behaviour shown here is indeed how it works. Whatever folder you have highlighted when you do the recover is where the recovered items will go.

Ha, a "it's not a bug but a feature", introduced with a Service Pack. That explains that and the confusion.
