Keep deleted items on the shared mailbox folder - Mac OSX


I have Outlook 2016 for Mac with Office 365 account. On my profile I have my personal account and shared mailboxes.

I have to send emails and delete some of them through the shared mailbox.

Is there a way to keep the deleted items on the shared mailbox folder and not on my personal folder? I know the registry fix on Windows but I can't find any way on Mac...

I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing.

Instead of selecting the emails and pressing delete, you can select the emails and drag them to the deleted items folder of the shared mailbox. That will keep the emails in the deleted items folder of the shared mailbox instead of moving them to your personal mailbox deleted items. That's the only way that I'm aware of.

Unlike sent items where you can configure that action per mailbox, there is no automated option or setting for items to be placed in the deleted items folder of the shared mailbox when using Outlook on a Mac.

However, you could spin up a Windows VM on the Mac and use Outlook within the VM.
