It depends on how you delete them, and SpamBayes doesn't change anything
about how Outlook always works in this respect.  If you hold down a Shift
key while pressing your Delete key, Outlook will *not* move them to the
Deleted Items file first.  Outlook may or may not pop up a dialog box then,
asking whether you're sure you want to delete them; this depends on how you
set Outlook's "Warn before permanently deleting items" option (under
Tools -> Options -> Other -> Advanced Options -> General setting).

Outlook can also be told to automatically delete everything in Deleted Items
whenever you close Outlook.

Oh, there's no charge.  We appreciate contributions, but you're welcome to
use the software with or without one.
