In my experience, the deleted items folder will only allow 16383 messages.
This is using real Outlook (not express).  There is no max folder size
setting to my knowledge, but there are some autoarchive settings.  It's
amusing that Outlook Express supports 20K+ messages but not Outlook.  I'd
say either switch back or switch to a "real" email program like Eudora or
Mulberry.  The only reason I continue to use Outlook is because it has all
of the date/calendar reminder/appointment stuff, and I don't think Eudora or
Mulberry have that (am I wrong?)
