    Automatically purge deleted items in IMAP account?

    I've set up an IMAP account in Outlook 2003 and find that deleted items are not removed, only shown crossed out, until I go to Edit>Purge.

    Is there a way to make this more automatic?

    Would they ever go away if I did not manually purge them?

    Thanks

    Thanks Joe.
    I've since been reading a bit on IMAP, not sure if the advantages are worth it for me.
    But I definately do not like this behavior on deleted items.
    From what I can tell, IMAP emails do not go into a Deleted Items folder? They are either left in your Inbox crossed-out or they are permanently gone after purging?
