Outlook 2010/IMAP/Google Apps

With Outlook 2010 over IMAP to Google Apps/Gmail, the default setting is that when you delete an item, it is moved into ‘Trash’ instead of archived. This is a problem if you count on having those Archived items out there for future reference. (Trash is discarded after 30 days).

To change this:

  • Click on File/Account Settings
  • Doubleclick the e-mail account you want to change.
  • Click More Settings
  • Go to the Delete Items Tab
  • Select '”Move deleted items to the following folder”
  • Select the “All Mail” folder in the Tree View. image
  • Click OK
  • Click Next and let it finish the setup.

That should do it. Now all deleted items will be Archived.
