Yes, I want to empy deleted items folder

It looks like I hit another annoying bug with Outlook 2010 Beta. Every time I exit outlook, I get the following prompt:

Do you want to permanently delete all the items and subfolders in the "deleted items" folder for all accounts.

Under Outlook Options > Advanced > Start and Exit, I have the following option checked off:
"Empty deleted items folders when exiting outlook"

Problem is that even if  there is nothing in the deleted items, I still get the prompt. It is possible to stop this by unchecking the option above but that would mean deleted items will need to be purged manually.

In 2007, there was an option that read "do not prompt when emptying deleted items". This option is no longer available...

I found a discussion about this on MS social but no solution as of yet.


Outlook 2010 Beta - Issue with smtp

I downloaded 2010 Beta bits from MSDN yesterday and installed over Office 2007. Upgrade was successful. The new Outlook interface is neat! I know there are several new features and by default it now sorts by Conversation & Date, which is how I prefer to read my e-mails, especially at work. It helps me to see the whole thread on a subject.

The only problem I have had was when receiving the e-mail. By default, Outlook 2007 used the following ports
POP3: 995 (SSL)
SMTP: 587 (TLS)
as per Gmail documentation

Outlook timed out sending e-mails with these settings. I tried a couple of times but I kept on getting  time-out messages with an error:

Task 'smtp server name - Sending and Receiving' reported error (0x8004210): 'The operation timed out waiting for a response from the sending (SMTP) server. If you continue to receive this message, contact your server administrator or Internet service provider (ISP).'

Message seems a bit generic as Microsoft listed this as an issue message for Outlook 2002. Anywho, problem is solved now but I am not clear what did the trick. Here is what I did:

Changed SMTP to : 465 SSL
After e-mail was successfully sent, I changed SMTP back to 587 (TLS). It is still working. Go figure!
