Or, Empty deleted items folders when exiting Outlook.

Descriptions: Its always cool to have this feature enabled in Outlook. My personal experience is, I never wanted to delete those emails again which I have already deleted from my inbox. To avoid this rework and save my time, I use to shift+delete the emails I don't want to keep in my mailbox but this became pain sometime when unknowingly I have selected any other useful emails and pressed Shift+Delete :(, So, in this case I prefer to only press delete button for any emails instead of pressing Shift+Delete.

After couple of days, deleted items folder get too huge with many emails and its again became suspicious whether to select all and delete or delete them one by one.. :(

Now just to avoid this situation and make sure things are being done accurately, I have set this option in my outlook and YES, I am happy. You can try this if this is suitable for you.

1. Open Outlook > Go to File

2.  Go to Options

3. Go to Advance > Enable check mark on "Empty deleted items folders when exiting Outlook".
