Not sure I understand 100% your question. When you delete an email in Outlook, it will be moved to your deleted items folder. When you delete it from the deleted items folder, it will remain for 15-30 days if you're connected to a corporate email server how that setting is set by the system administrator.

If you're using Outlook at home and NOT connected to Microsoft exchange, your email is usually stored in a PST file and you can recover the emails however it's not easy.

Here is a guide for corrupting a PST file and recovering the email using SCANPST - http://www.groovypost.com/forum/microsoft-office/how-to-corupt-an-outlook-pst-file-to-recover-delete-email-t95682.html

Hope that helps.

Yup - If you don't delete it, it will never vanish.
