    You may get better response to your thread with this tip.
    Removing an app icon from the Dock will have no effect on that app's files or folders, so your emails should be there. The Dock icon is just an alias (shortcut) pointing to the application. If you remove the alias, the app remains untouched. Try launching Outlook from your Applications folder in Finder.

    Yes, you should be able to restore them from TM. You are talking about Outlook for Mac, not Outlook for Windows, right? Running Mac OS X and not using Boot Camp or Parallels or VMware Fusion, right?

    When I press the trash icon is only says open and empty the trash, is that because it is all ready emptying the trash, my god it is talking forever.

    No, it always shows Open and Empty Trash. Look at the Trash icon to see if it's empty. If you have a large number of items being deleted, it can take a while. Just be patient and let it finish.

    Between your Control and Command key in the lower left corner of your keyboard. It should say Option and Alt.

    Did you press and hold it while selecting Empty Trash? If so, did the Trash empty?
