Outlook Deleted Items folder is a trash for Outlook email messages. Under default Outlook settings, when you delete any email message from folders, like Inbox or Sent Items, it is first stored in Deleted Items folders before permanent removal. But if you empty the folder, no email recovery will be possible unless you have a valid data backup or apply a commercial application to Recover Deleted Email.
To illustrate such scenarios, consider you delete some of your emails from Inbox folder for some purpose, while considering to restore them later. But before restoring them, you empty the Deleted Items folder. This could also occur if you have selected the 'Empty the Deleted Items folder upon exiting' check box and quit the application before restoring the desired contents. This option automatically deletes the Deleted Items folder contents upon quitting. Thus, if you make this setting, it is suggested to select 'Warn before permanently deleting items' check box in Advanced Options.
