The only way I can think of to do it is for users who connect Outlook to
a Microsoft Exchange Server, rather than a simple POP3 or IMAP server.
You could simply remove "owner" permissions on the folder from your own
account, and assign them somewhere else. You would still want your own
account to have "publishing editor" permissions, however. This could
probably be automated with a script of some sort. You could do anything
to the folder or its contents except rename or delete it.

In POP3/IMAP mode, however, there are no permissions settings for the
folders, which are stored in .PST files rather than the Exchange server
