    I am running outlook 2002, I have a folder for aol (free mail). When I
    delete a message it only strikes a line through the message. It will NOT
    permenatly delete the message, I cannot even move the message to another
    folder, like the "deleted items" folder.

    How can I delete these messages from my view like the other accounts I have?
