Is there a way that I can globally enforce a policy to empty the deleted folders on the Outlook clients automatically? I need to know if this cannot be undone by the user. Please advise asap. Thank you,

Thanks. We'll let you know when a new response is added.

I don’t know how many calls you want your help desk to field requesting restores of mail people didn’t mean to delete. I personally would not suggest you do this, however perhaps a better option might be to set a deletion policy on your exchange server to delete mail in the deleted items folder after say 30 days or at least two weeks. That way people have a little time to retrieve something themselves which they accidentally deleted.
