On the second one, go to File, Options, Advanced - at the very bottom of the dialog (under the Quick Click button) is the option to warn before deleting.




You can't get a warning before deleting message from folders when you send them to the deleted items folder. If you use shift+delete to permenetly delete, you'll be warned with warn before delete enabled.
