Do emails still remain in Window 7 after deleting?Seems I have seen some,I am pretty much computer dumb and have no interest beyond the basics.
I do not like libraries,I see things that should be removed but do not know how to.I would remove the libraries if I could,liked XP and document folder,one place.

Emails are not handed by Windows, but by the email program that you run within Windows.
Microsoft Exchange perhaps?
But most email programs treat email just like the computers treat computer files on their disk drives.
When you "delete" them, they are not actual removed, over-ritten, or erased, but rather the space they take up is marked available for use, and the table of contents pointing to that space is so changed. But the data is still there, and it may be possible to UN-delete them.

IE: I believe that when MS Exchange deletes your email, it actually moves the email to a folder marked deleted. If it's still there, it should be easy to un-delete. However, there may be settings that clean out the delete folder to free up space, and other utilities like CC Cleaner that will also do this.

I sincerely doubt he's referring to Exchange here, Ed.

Dan, this stuff is pretty customizable. You can remove libraries.

What I am trying to say is,does Windows Live deleted emails get stored somewhere in my Windows 7,it seems that I saw an endless list of deleted emails.
How do you get rid of them.
I did get CCleaner installed and they cleaned out a whole bunch,doesn't effect my use.
The library's are annoying.

As I recall with with Windows live when you delete an email it goes to "deleted" bin or whatever it it's labeled, you need to delete them from there to fully delete them. If you look in the options there should be one for empty trash on exit which will do it automatically when you close the program.

I always delete spam and messages but when poking around with search I see a endless list of deleted mail,I would like this removed somehow from my Win 7.I have very limited ability and interest with computer.
