  • Hi,

    If you mean the 'Permanently Deleting Confirmation' dialog, you can disable it via unchecking the "Prompt for confirmation before permanently deleting items" option under File > Options > Advanced > Other in Outlook for Windows version.

    If you are using the Outlook for Mac version, I'm afraid currently there is no option available to disable this prompt.

    Hope this helps.

    Regards,
    Steve Fan
