Both clients I use show deleted messages with a line through them, and
neither one is Outlook.  Why would you call this ridiculous?  It's easy
to undelete by highlighting one and clicking undelete.  And it reminds
me they're still taking up space, which nudges me to expunge them every
so often.  I like controlling when my messages get wiped out.
