When you send an email it will be stored in sent Items. Click on sent items and delete emails you don’t others to see. If you started an email but didn’t send it, it might be in your drafts folder. Go to the draft folder to delete it. When you reply to an email, the original message will probably be in the body of the message – delete the email if you don’t want anyone to see it.

If you delete an email make sure that you go into the deleted items folder and delete it from there as well to ensure that it is removed completely.
